It's National Vinyl Record Day!

Many youngsters growing up today have never seen one, however lot's of Mom's and Dad's and grandparents grew up listening to acts like Hank Williams Sr., Elvis Presley and the Beatles on vinyl records.

They are also known as:  Gramophone records, phonograph records or just plain "records".  The vinyl record is an analog sound storage medium.  It consists of a flat disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove.

They can be found in different diameters, such as:  12-inch, 10-inch or 7-inch with a rotational speeds of 33 1/3, 45, or 78 rpm.  Time capacity ranged form:  "single", "EP(extended play) to "LP(long play).  The number of channels of audio provided were listed as "mono", "stereo" and a few were even "quadraphonic".

If you still have some vinyl records, plus a working turntable complete with amplifier, why not fire it up and spin some of those golden oldies today.  I'll bet your grand-kids will get a "hoot" out of it.

Happy,  National Vinyl Record Day!
