For almost twenty years (1947-1969), AUDIOPHILE Records Inc. from Saukville, Wisconsin captured for posterity diverse music artists in different genres. This musical and technological adventure was the product of a visionary man named Ewing D. Nunn (1900-1976), inventor, entrepreneur and above all, fan of good music and believer in high quality sound recording. These records in their beautifully red ruby color, are part of a catalog composed of a hundred albums, and their story is something that the Oscar Grady Library is eager to share .
