I'm new to this group and am hoping someone can help me or refer me to someone who can.
I have a very old record (probably from the early 30's) that is 'flaking' i.e. the black covering is starting to come off. I'm afraid to play it because I just tried to and it started flaking even more leaving a spot of shiny silver metal.
Is there anyone or anything I can do to repair this? Or at least to find someone who can digitally transfer the disc?
I believe it is a recording my grandfather did of his friend, WC Handy, the famous blues musician/composer and may even have my late grandfather's voice on it. Or it may be a recording of a radio show that WC Handy was being interviewed on.
I appreciate any help you can give me on this.
