Re: [ARSCLIST] Glass Records
Or you can also look at the center hole, if the substrate appears to be
metal, that's a clue. Glass and metal look very different.

If one of them was recorded in the 30s, there's little chance that it'll
be glass based unless it's a dub made between 1941 and 1946. Still best
to handle these with the greatest of care, but you can easily identify a
glass disc by holding it up to the light. If no light passes through,
even faintly, you have aluminum based discs (or steel or cardboard).
Hi to all,
I don't usually post to the forum, however I read it daily and enjoy
it. I have 3 Records made on Glass that were my Aunts. 2 records,
recorded in the 40's are of the Stewart Sisters (backup group for Rudy
Vallee, she was Jean) and one is a recording, done in the 30's of her
group, "The Girlfriends Trio". I was hoping someone could direct me
to a good internet site or book to educate myself about these records.
Also, I am sure there is a special way to store them, right now I have
them in a large, 78rpm Album in a verticle position. Any thoughts?
Thanks so much,
