"On This Day in Phonographic History..."

October 29, 1929: Arthur Walsh, Vice President of the Edison Radio-Phonograph Division announced to the trade that, “After a careful weighing of the record business and its prospects, we have decided to discontinue the production of records…  This step is being taken regretfully because the phonograph for home entertainment was one of Mr. Edison’s favorite inventions.”
