Music is the juice of life. So sweet, the beating heart. And not without hints of life’s transience, the inevitability of bitter loss.  It's all there.


Yesterday I asked how lengthy recordings were able to be preserved in the pre-LP era, since 78-rpm records maxed out at less than 4 minutes a side. My friend Jay Sherman-Godfrey, wonderful musician and acclaimed record producer, wrote in with the answer. Thanks Jay! His answer:

“Radio transcription discs. Very large, like 3 feet across.”

Large indeed!
