Traditions and customs from A to Z

The first sound recording media.

78s, long-playing records, music cassettes, CDs ... all these universally adopted inventions have their roots in Lower Saxony. In 1887, the Hannoverian inventor Emil Berliner unveiled the 78 record and the gramophone to play it on. His brother went on to found the Deutsche Grammophon record company, later part of PolyGram. Other pioneering inventions followed, including the LP, cassette and compact disc (CD).
