Hello all, I have started reading 'Reinventing Bach' by Paul Elie.  It 
looks to be very interesting and well-researched, and he starts out by 
recounting the Bach recordings made in December 1935 by Albert 
Schweitzer at the Church of All Hallows in London.  He describes the 
recording team standing by with their "wax cylinder" recording equipment 
-- I did not know that cylinders were used so late in mobile recording.  
Assuming he is correct about this, how long was it before cylinders went 
out of use for recording?

Thanks. Gene gene.baron at gmail.com
That's as annoying as two recent references--one on TV; one on radio--to 
"vinyl 78s"!
