The following question was asked by a newsletter reader. I'm stumped. Can someone else help?
We found an old record, roughly 6 1/2 inches in diameter that was made by one of my uncles during World War II. (don't know which one, there were four in service)
It's in a paper envelope that states: "This "Letter on a Record" is one of the many services offered to those engaged in the defense of their country. They are available at USO Clubs or centers operated by the National Catholic Community Service. This, and a wide variety of other services, help to make every USO Club operated by NCCS a "home away from home."
There is one center hole, with three more holes shaped in a triangle around it, about an inch away from the center. No one I know has ever seen anything like this and I've never read anything about them. You'd think the USO would have sent out thousands of these, but I can't find any information on them.
Basically what I'm asking, is HOW do I play this so I can hear one of my uncles again?
