The TV program had a printed note that in 2008 Rainbo's CD production had gone
down, and part of the interview was about how much their vinyl production has
been going up!
When we had the ARSC in Santa Barbara, I wish we had known that Rainbo was still
in business, that the original owner was still alive, and the place was so
close. We should have had a tour of the place. I would have loved interviewing
the old man -- there is a great article about him or by him somewhere on the web
that I found a few months after the conference. Among other things, Rainbo
manufactured most of the WW II soldier records to home blanks for Gem Blades and
the USO, etc.
