RE: Ancient recordings



This business with clay sounds suspiciously similar to one of the
"well-known facts" brought to light in the Firesign Theatre's "Everything
You Know Is Wrong," amongst them:

        Our forefathers took drugs!
        The Aztecs invented the vacation!
and     Your brain may not be the boss!

No, no, but almost seriously, folks, one of the interesting bits in this
marvelous video (which was also a record) involves the playing of a wire
recording allegedly dating back to post-Civil War days...

Interesting that wire recorders are still used too, in the Black Boxes we
hear about being retrieved, all too often.
