Design: Electrical flashes form the swashes above and below the label name, superimposed on a record. The label also features a font from a now-obsolete machine, the typewriter.

History: A small local business making use of plastic-coated aluminum-based discs for 'home recording,' a technology which first became practicable in the 1940s. Featuring my wife's recording debut at 10 years old in a piano-playing contest.
