      Let me second that. Thanks for posting that- I'm not a regular reader of Chemistry and Engineering News, but far more interesting than a lot of the stuff I read. Could you imagine the ultimate anachrophile- nah, dude, you gotta check out wax cylinders. Unfortunately, few hard rock bands were around during their heyday. BTW, did you ever see the photo of the Indian Chief in front of a gramophone horn at the Library? Something to do with native language and one of the Library's longtime ethnomusiclogists is in the frame. Here's a quick link:
      [caption id="attachment_396" align="aligncenter" width="414" caption="Save Our Sounds Postcard, Photo Courtesy of National Anthropological Archives"][/caption] For the last few years, I’ve had this postcard up in my office promoting Save Our Sounds, a program by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage (CFCH) and the Library of Congress dedicated to restoring, preserving, and digitizing historic recordings.  What a wild image! How did this woman from the 1800s end up in the field recording this imposing figure with a gramophone?
