Will Rogers' Timely Topics

Memories of the Phonograph


Will Rogers* Victor record 45347-B "Timely Topics" 1923

"you know, these talking machines are great things. When you come to a theater or movie and don't like our act just out of courtesy you have to stick and see it through. But with one of these, if you don't like it, you can just stop the machine, take the record off and accidently drop it to the floor. Then the only annoyance it will cause you is sweeping up."
