I remember my Dad telling me about setting up some sort of operation to 
record onto aluminum discs at CBS Radio in NY City during WWII. I want 
to say that they set this up immediately after 1941-12-07. I don't 
recall what was being recorded, but I think it was other news feeds both 
foreign and domestic. He's not around to clarify anymore.
