Dear Richard (and others),
the lady in question is a professional accordion player, for the moment taking part in my research project about Norwegian artist's recordings before 1950 (yes, shellac records). There is a lot of accordion music in this material, and I think the medium itself (surface noise and all) fascinated her to the degree that she asked if it was possible to do this today.

Dear Tore Simonsen:
It would be interesting to know the rationale of your musician friend who inquired about shellac 78 pressings. Did she explain her reason(s) to you?
