The real sounds of history

    One of the big bonuses to an improved economic situation in Delaware is the return to regular hours for the Johnson Victrola Museum, it had been reduced to a once a month experience.  Volunteers now keep the museum going strong.  Eldridge Reeves Johnson founded the Victor Talking Machine Company at the turn of the 20th century.  It’s a perfect First Experience for the Fourth of July.
