Your shiny, new vinyl and those old, dusty records in your basement may look simple, but they’re the product of years of technical innovation, intellectual property battles, tussles over musical aesthetics, and marketing frenzies. Join Dr. Dave Lewis, sound archivist at Bowling Green State University’s Bill Schurk Sound Archives, to learn more about the fascinating history of vinyl, its predecessors, and its recent resurgence, as well as the wealth of recorded sound in BGSU’s archives.
