You just stirred up one of my early recording memories.  1948, 
Webcor Electric wire recorder.  I recall the wire was hair thin and 
created a real miss when the wire broke and the spindle keep 
reeling. That seemed to happen often.  Editing was simple.  Cut the 
wire and knot the ends together. Oh me, times gone by.

Thanks for the memory.
