The Duke Special Gramophone Club
From the dawn of the twentieth century until the Second World War, recorded music was played on gramophones on " 78" discs made of shellac.
After the War, vinyl emerged as the standard for LPs, eventually ceding to the digital age with CDs; i tunes and spotify.
But now, in the early years of the twenty first century, enthusiastic DJ's are returning to the old shellac gramophone records..
Tomorrow evening sees the inauguration of The Duke Special Gramophone Club at nine o'clock at the Liquor Rooms here in Dublin and Duke joins Sean with a gramophone and shellacs to explain his passion www.dukespecial.com/
