#GIVEAWAY & #FREEBIES for Vinyl Record Day @AmityCross
Gary Freiberg of Los Osos, California founded National Vinyl Record Day (commemorating the day Thomas Edison invented the phonograph in 1877) as a reminder of fond memories and the good things in life, especially vinyl records. These vinyl records are commemorated annually on August 12. Vinyl records are also known as a gramophone record, phonograph record or a record. It is an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc which has an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. Other features of vinyl records included reproductive accuracy or “fidelity” (High Fidelity or Hi-Fi, Orthophonic and Full-Range), their time capacity (long playing or single), and the number of channels of audio provided (mono, stereo or quadraphonic). Vinyl records left the mainstream in 1991. They continued to be manufactured and have started to become increasingly popular with collectors and audiophiles.
