Before we can dive deeper into the history and significance of National Vinyl Record Day we need to first understand the history of vinyl. Vinyl records are also known by the phonograph and gramophone names. This method of music storage uses a flat disc with a modulated spiral groove and inscribed groove. The groove is most common near the disc’s periphery and ends close to its center. These discs were made primarily with shellac in the beginning. In the 1940s, shellac was the preferred material. This is how vinyl was born. It didn’t really matter what material you used once you reached the mid 2000s. Records were simply called vinyl or vinyl records.
You might be curious when this journey began. It was quite a while ago. Leon Scott patented the phonautograph in 1857. The phonautograph was a combination of a vibrating diaphragm and a stylus. This allowed sound waves to be graphically recorded on paper as tracings. However, it was not intended to play them back at that time. It was only for visual analysis. It was only in 2008 that the phonautograms of singing and speech that Scott made in the 1860s could be played back as sound.
Thomas Edison invented the phonograph in 1877. This device was able to record sound and reproduce it, making it different from the phonautograph. While the names sound very similar, there is not any evidence that Edison’s invention was inspired by Scott’s.
Now that you are more familiar with vinyl records, how about the actual day? National Vinyl Record Day is Gary Freiberg from Los Osos (California) to thank. He selected the date to honor the 1877 invention of the phonograph by Thomas Edison. Gary encourages people to think about the positive things in their lives and look back fondly on vinyl records. This perspective shows that it’s a day we can all enjoy, regardless of whether or not you are a huge music fan.
