This is so crazy! I did not know where this was going and I loved it. I would love to have vinyl made from an x-ray. The people that did it just wanted to listen to good music. Good job!

This was so interesting! I can’t believe that out of all things they used x-rays to make music. It’s crazy to me that hospitals would just throw out their old records and people would buy them off of medical professionals. On another note, the x-rays make for cool looking vinyl records!

Your presentation is just as interesting as it was when you presented during class. I find this topic so fascinating, and would love to own one of those records. I really like how relatable you made the young people back then, to now. I would do the same for music that I loved!!

Very interesting topic, who would have thought x-ray film has multiple uses? I really liked how you tied together the past with the present. It would be so cool to get ahold of one of these and actually hear the music on it and see someone’s x-ray on the “record”. Great pictures to go along with the information. Great job Melissa!

I loved watching your presentation again, Melissa and I’m so glad you participated! I’m so glad you included the original blacklist in Russian and then found one that translated for us so we could see what songs were banned. It’s crazy to me that some leaders think they have a right to control what people want to listen to. Whoever had the idea to make these bootleg x-ray vinyl’s and found out exactly how to, wins my praise completely. I still want to buy one of these because I just think they are the coolest. I don’t like the fact that people got in trouble for this but, as a fellow music lover, I am totally behind the fact that people wanted music so much that they would risk buying these. I like the comparison with these “rebels” to the hipsters of today.

Holy moly, is this ever fascinating! Great topic and well done, Melissa. I’d love to hear a sample of the kinds of music being pressed on these gonzo things.
