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.
