MAKA RECORD

Recommended Posts

Saw this at the Early TV Museum in Hilliard, OH.

Does anyone know about these? Seems odd that it has grooves on both sides, as I thought the "record yourself" records typically were one-sided. I am prodding the museum staff to try playing the thing to see what's on it.

I can't tell from the pictures, but how did you tell there are grooves on the other side? And yes, all of the ones I have seen (non-NYWF though) like this are one sided, flat on the reverse.

Hi All,

mine is two sided and is labelled with what is on it and by whom. I believe these are worth a decent penny. I also guess they were recorded in the Communications Building?

Best,

Eric

Wow that brings back memories of my youth. I cut a record at the top of the Empire State Building when I was a kid in the 60's. My big line was "I am at the tippy tippy top of the World" . My Aunt May & Aunt Frances took me there. We used to take it out & play it for a good laugh. I wish I knew where is was now.

I turned it over. The two pics are of the two sides (one side has a little scribble on the label). The grooves on both sides appear to be modulated.
