Jack White is a straight up don, no doubt. Got style an’ panache.
Check this, the man has a record booth set up in his store. Yes, a record booth, you seen them in films back in the day….okay, maybe you didn’t. I saw one in a film a month ago, so maybe I think everybody is the same.
Regardless, they are super rare, apparently the one Jack has is the only operating one known to exist. So in celebration of Record Store Day, of which Jack is this years ambassador, “On Saturday, April 20th, Jack White and Third Man Records will unveil their Third Man Recording Booth, a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine that records up to 2 minutes of audio and dispenses a one-of-a-kind 6” phonograph disc to the user. Whether it be a song, a message to a lover, an audio postcard or just the curiosity of a process that has mystified so many folks for ages, the ability to “hear yourself as others hear you” is not only a tagline here…it’s an invitation, a charge, a call to arms.”
