Archivists at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton are working to restore more than 700 vintage recordings ruined by Superstorm Sandy.
Vintage record seller Peter Muldavin donated the recordings to the university'sRecorded Sound Archives in April after Superstorm Sandy hit his mother-in-law's Long Beach, New York home where he was storing them.
Muldavin claims his collection of 18,000 vintage children’s recordings is the largest of its kind. They are records that rotate at 78 revolutions per minute or rpms. He goes by the name the “Kiddie Rekord King.”
