Re: [ARSCLIST] Appraisal of Sound Recordings

Some random thoughts, all hypothetical, except one:

A signifcant collection of Memovox discs or other obsolete "modern"

Or perhaps these rolls resembling filmstrips  with the single groove in
the center.  The Library has a tub of Marine War Front recordings on
these I believe.

Dean Benedetti's wire collection of Charlie Parker solos.

or maybe a large collection of music on 16rpm discs.
