This one's for Mark, 'cause I know he's into those old sounds: Turtle's "78 RPM" Jukebox, remastered from original recordings which have lapsed into the public domain. Some are pretty noisy, but on some the remastering is incredible.

Tres cool. I've got a couple hundred old 78 RPMs at home (most of which are not featured on that site), and my grandfather's floor model Victor victrola on which to play them: maybe I should record them and set up a similar site? Hmm, I'd need a large supply of fresh needles, but that's not too hard. Anyone know what the best recording method would be?

I'm tempted to make some clueless comment about the possibility of a needle exchange program...

I think we set up something by just wiring line out on a cassette recorder through the mic jack on a PC (or maybe it was the other way around), just start out with an extremely low volume (gain). But I'm sure someone else has a system that'd really work well. You might try emailing those folks and seeing what they use, because it also sounds like they've got some software cleanup stuff figured out too.
