NBC Recording Room

This room in the Radio City building was the center for all program recordings. Six transcription lathes were used to make recordings on 16 inch 33-1/3 R.P.M. vinyl disks, fifteen minutes to a side. The four turntables at the rear of the room were used for playback purposes only, to audition recordings. The rack cabinets contained program amplifiers and audio switching equipment.
