1928 is going back 10 full years before this so called Telefunken that was talked about on this, “Documentary”. I swear, the History channel used to talk about ancient history, world history, wars, etc. but now all they do is talk about Ancient Aliens and other pseudo science crap, they’ve lost all credibility.

The show was about the recording industry, so I guess they breezed over that stuff so they could fast forward to the Beatles and the Stones. To hear them tell it, the reel to reel wasn’t around before the Beatles tried to 4 track.
