Imagine it's 1957, and Eisenhower is president. You can get a gallon of gas for .27 cents, and Elvis Presley is all the rage. But best of all, it's your wedding day. Friends and family are gathered, flowers are in place, and there's a TEAC reel-to-reel deck set up in the back of the church. The microphone was placed just right. Now, this is one of the most memorable days of your life. That's why the ceremony is being recorded. You wrote your vows, and he wrote his, and soon all present will hear them. You will go from being boyfriend and girlfriend to man and wife. The ceremony starts, and the record button on the TEAC is pushed in. From that point, your wedding day is copied word for word via one microphone placed just right. You never imagined that in the year 2022, you would hear these sounds again. From the vows to the powerful "I Do." It sounds almost unbelievable to hear it. You're pulled back 60 years. You're amazed.
