Subject: The REALLY olden days of radio

I found this on Facebook.

On this date in 1934, John Frederick Coot and Haven Gillespie's "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" was heard for the first time on radio on Eddie Cantor's popular NBC Radio show. Within 24 hours, 100,000 copies of the sheet music were order and 30,000 records sold.

We've lived through seeing vinyl replaced by CDs and now digital downloads. Sometimes we forget that vinyl replaced shellac 78s, and that sheet music for the Play It Yourself crowd significantly outsold recordings.
