Some random thoughts, all hypothetical, except one:
A signifcant collection of Memovox discs or other obsolete "modern"
Or perhaps these rolls resembling filmstrips with the single groove in
the center. The Library has a tub of Marine War Front recordings on
these I believe.
Dean Benedetti's wire collection of Charlie Parker solos.
or maybe a large collection of music on 16rpm discs.
