Scott’s Guest Blog at The Vinyl District, Weeks 9-10

It’s been a couple weeks since one of these Vinyl blog updates here on The Masterdisk Record. Last week (Week 9) we posted an interview Scott did with Tony Dawsey about his vinyl cutting experience. This week (Week 10) Scott gets deeper into the specs for vinyl set by the RIAA and answers the question “How many grooves are there on a typical record?”
