Record Your Voice at Home!

September 1963

X-Men #1

When it comes to technology, we’re pretty spoiled these days – everyone has phones that can perform a million and one functions that in previous decades, would’ve required many various pieces of expensive equipment. That’s why I think you really have to put yourself in a 1960s’ mindset to really appreciate just how cool this really is.

Record your voice at home! You can make your own records! With anything you want on them!! This was well before cassettes, and while reel-to-reels existed at this time, they weren’t nearly as commonplace as records were, and most families wouldn’t have had any practical means of audio recording.

Of course, I have no idea what the quality was like for this – for all I know, it could’ve been terrible! But I still think this is an exceptionally cool idea, and I’m sure quite a few people got pretty excited about this back in the day!
