war welcomed these musical snapshots of life back home.The V-Disc project actually began in June 1941,
six months before the United States' involvement in World War II, when
Captain Howard Bronson was assigned to the Army's Recreation and Welfare
Section as a musical advisor. Bronson suggested the troops might
appreciate a series of records featuring military band music,
inspirational records that could motivate soldiers and improve morale.
By 1942, the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) sent 16-inch, 33 rpm vinyl transcription discs
to the troops from eight sources: special recording sessions, concerts,
recitals, radio broadcasts, film sound tracks and commercial records.
