Classical Music on 45s (This week at 10 am!)

April 20, 2013

You might think that long playing records were for classical music and the 45 rpm record was for popular music. But in Germany, much classical music was released on 45 rpm records between 1953 and 1965. Some years ago, the Deutsche Grammophon Company released on CDs a nostalgic collection of music released on those "little records with the big holes." We'll play some of them.
