Sixteen Inches Of Radio


16 inch Transcription Disk

Sean visits old school audio collector Randy Riddle in his Mebane, N.C. home.

They listen to selections from his massive collection of sixteen-inch transcription discs, a recording format from the 1930s.

His collection preserves moments in time, like World War II and the period when America was worried about socialism.
