I came up with a pile of transcriptions today, along with a machine to play them on. Lots of Armed Forces stuff from the fifties. The most interesting are 16" one-sided discs on Vitrolac, recorded at 331/3, with musical and bare-bones plot synopses from 30"s MGM movies. I have 15 of them, and I've never seen such things before. Everything from "Let Freedom Ring" to "Love finds Andy Hardy"! I assume they were from radio shows that plugged MGM movies. Anybody know how many of these were done. The ones I have each have an RCA envelope and most have a needle attached. They look almost mint. Grateful for any further info.
