Today is National Vinyl Record Day

Today is National Vinyl Record Day

The vintage vinyl is almost as much of a classic as the bands themselves. Vinyl used to be the main means for commercial distribution of pop music from the 1950s through the early 1990s when the compact disk started to take over (which since has been replaced by digital downloads or streaming music). A vinyl record is also known as gramophone record, phonograph record or simply a record – an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc which has an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. While vinyl left mainstream production in the early 1990s, it experienced a strong revival with collectors and audiophiles in the past decade.

Today in History: Lithography was invented in 1798

Today in History: Lithography was invented in 1798

220 years ago today, German author Alois Senefelder invented the lithographic printing method (from the Greek, “stone printing”). Looking for an inexpensive method for copying his manuscripts, Senefelder was experimenting with etching techniques using acid resisting inks on a flat stone surface. He soon discovered that his method allowed printing from the flat surface of the stone alone. Compared to conventional copper engraving, it enabled a much faster way of working. Lithography made printing much more affordable and available to more people (f.ex. in art and newspaper printing). By 1830, Senefelder’s process had become the dominant method of pictorial reproduction in the printing industry.

Today in History: First successful Matterhorn ascent in 1865

Today in History: First successful Matterhorn ascent in 1865

153 years ago today, the Matterhorn (4,478 m, 14,692 ft) was first successfully ascended by Edward Whymper and his team of mountaineers, Michel Croz, Lord Francis Douglas, Charles Hudson, Douglas Hadow, and the two Zermatt guides, Peter Taugwalder father and son. During the descent, however, the day ended in tragedy when Douglas, Hudson, Hadow and Croz were killed after a supporting rope broke. One climber had slipped, pulling the three others with him. Taugwalder and Whymper had been alarmed by Croz’s warning shouts and when they grasped the rocks, the rope broke, causing the four others to plummet to their deaths.

Today in History: The 33 RPM LP was introduced in 1948

70 years ago today, Columbia Records introduced the 33 1/3 rpm microgroove record album. In many ways this invention gave birth to the modern pop album. Of course, all kinds of albums were (and still are) released as vinyl records, but pop albums were the first to be structured around the format. The length, number and order of songs were designed around the 22 minute per side limitation.
