I got back into listening to 78s over 15 years ago when listening to Radio Dismuke on Live365. It's not something I can to for long periods of time, but it is a neat change of pace for my listening.

I remember my father had a small collection of 78s -- a few of them were comedies, including I think Cohen on the Telephone.

Do you have any experience with listening to 78s? Whether you have or not, post up your ten here...
