Video: Meet the Men Who Own 50 Tons of 78s. Literally.


Richard Tussey and Alan Carell, two of the collectors featured in this week's Riverfront Times feature "Hold the Phono," have more than a quarter of a million 78 records between them. Their dream is to share them all with you -- in a public archive.

In this RFT video, Tussey and Carell introduce some of their favorite records and explain why it's so important that their collection, in all its magnitude, be preserved.

Tussey has so many records, he keeps some on the ceiling. He calls it his Sistine Chapel.

Read "Hold the Phono: If you meet three fellows from Ferguson who happen to mention they've got tons of old 78s, they ain't kidding."

Note to Tom Carlson: You really ought to use a tripod. Shooting interviews from below eye level is disturbing and amateurish. Otherwise, very well done!
