Rough Trade Records Hot Wax Tees nce upon a time in a joint far, far away, records were... records. Come to think of it, radios had tubes, too - but that's another story. 78 would run for just over three minutes. That's how we decided how long a popular song ought to be, and mostly, we haven't changed our minds. id anyone even pay attention to the labels? ou've got just about any sort of design, whether it hailed from art deco or the five and dime - and though the pressures of the business led often enough down a trail to the land of what's cheap, these nameless artists still managed to squeeze in some flights of brilliance and wonder.

Music | innergun ARCHIVE OF RECORDED 78 RPM RECORDS 树音乐 [北京] Presto History THE PRESTO HISTORY PAGE (Updated July 2012) Newly added are personal recollections from Robert and Joe Saliba, son's of founder George Saliba and can be found in the reference section, paragraphs 4 and 5 at the end of this narrative. PRESTO Recording Corporation was a power-house company in the broadcast and recording industry, and most radio stations and networks that made use of disc recorders for delayed broadcast, or air checks, etc., were users of PRESTO EQUIPMENT. All of the major broadcast network headquarters, as well as many recording studios used PRESTO recorders. This page will include a brief history, as much as we have to date, as we are still accumulating information. The very early years are a little sketchy but the Presto Products Company was founded in 1915. In 1932 Gernsback Publications published a book "Home Recording And All About It", written by George Saliba. It is difficult to see, but the word "Presto" appears on the pickup head in the right most picture.
