    One man's Quest to Digitize and Publicize Rare Vinyl (78s)

    "there's a whole world of music that you don't hear anymore,
    and it's on 78 RPM records."

    As things stand now, the 57-year-old Portland, Oregon, native has uploaded 3,739 MP3s, with plenty more in the pipeline.

    The story: http://blog.wired.com/music/2008/08/one-mans-quest.html

    The 78 site ... http://78records.cdbpdx.com/

    Heather, thank you for the tip!

    Great music although I will not know all of them.
    International artists and music which spilled over to Germany are well known. Tommy Dorsey, Bill Haley, Louis Proima ...
    There is quite a lot for Jazz lovers.
    Some titles showed Error 404.

    Great work!

    It was published in Wired online, then someone posted it to Slashdot geek website - so thousands of bored geeks are probably going to see and pounding the guy's webserver right now -

    Awesome, thanks!

    That site's going to crash & burn with traffic soon...hopefully he'll bother to keep things up as bandwidth increases.
