Today marks the 38th anniversary of the death of German-Hungarian engineer Dr. Peter Carl Goldmark in a car accident.  During his tenure with Columbia Records, he was instrumental in the development of the long-playing 33 1/3RPM microgroove record, which spurred a revolution in the way we listened to music.  At one point, he even developed something called the Highway Hi-Fi, which enabled playback of records in vehicles.

According to the music sales-measuring boffins at Nielsen, as of July of this year, LP sales in Canada were up 40 percent over the previous year.

Love, Dr. Scott James
