Be aware that this (sadly) is with a 30k printer, the accuracy of the
1k$ printers for home is not yet up to that. But what if one printed a
record with deeper and bigger grooves at home and also printed a
fitting needle? Add a nice membrane and a horn and you get your own

Now this makes me feel older than you are, but this is what I got from
people wh remember the times (where they really there if they remember

There where radio-stations sending out programs (as computer-programs)
to record and then use on your C64. And I believe also some TV-shows
sending a black-and-white box in a corner which was binary code...

A band distributing a game via vinyl was probably one of the slowest
distribution ways even at that time without the global internets.

On the other hand: what would happen if one uses vmlinuz and initrd as
raw-input for lame and then back to 'wave' with mpg123?

Have fun,
