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..
