What changed with vinyl records

Description

The picture shows all of the vinyl's that WBAP- Tv station in Texas had and would use during air time in 1971. Vinyl records have been around since 1948 and have revolutionized the way people use to listen to music in their homes. Vinyl record players were very popular and could be found in several homes throughout the United States. The records were fragile and bulky even in the 1980s but it was still an important piece of technology. Vinyl records have influenced how we listen to our music today. Records were the first giant CD that had multiple songs on it that could be played anytime you wanted to listen to it, you could also “skip” songs by picking up the needle and moving it to the next line down. This has led to modern stereo players and other musical devices used to listen to songs.
