Uncle Warren’s 78 revolutions per minute
78 revolutions per minute

You say you want a revolution? Well, you know …

I’ve got 78 revolutions for you – every minute.

Come with me to the days when life sped by at 78 REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE.

Once upon a time when a song was sung or a tree fell in the forest, the sound was lost forever except in the memories of those who had heard. Then came the magical machines that preserved the performances and other sounds on shellac discs that spun at 78 revolutions per minute. The host of the now legendary Uncle Warren’s Attic podcast returns with a new series devoted to those magical discs.

Uncle Warren’s Attic

uwabnr

“A whimsical and eclectic journey through pop culture via the mind and aural stash of Warren Bluhm” is a podcast that ran for 80 episodes from Sept. 20, 2006, through Nov. 30, 2013. I would sift through my attic of old stuff and talk about it, for about a half-hour at a time.

What kind of old stuff? Oh, old movies, old-time radio, old radio and TV commercials, old books and comic books and magazines – you know, old stuff.

I’m now devoted to the podcast about the 78 rpm era, but perhaps there’ll be occasional special edition Uncle Warren’s Attic shows when I feel like a foray into other realms. In the meantime, here’s a handy-dandy archive …
