In 1955, Jascha Heifetz, Fritz Reiner, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra set out to record the Brahms Violin Concerto in D major. RCA engineers made two simultaneous recordings of the performance, one on the standard equipment of the day, the other on the new stereophonic tape machines, knowing that -- one day -- consumer playback equipment would catch up with the then-state-of-the-art studio technology that they employed.

Congrats to Good Luck Audrey, the winner of the WFIT Garage Band Contest! Tune in to Sound Waves April 7th at noon for a Live In Studio Session with the winners!
