    Thomas Edison gets a big "Father's Day" thank you from Recorded Music. He tracked that first hit, "Mary had a Little Lamb" back in 1877.

    Nope. Tesla was a genius for sure.... but the dispute between Edison and Tesla had nothing to do with recorded sound.

    Tesla didn't even work with Edison until 1884... 7 years after Edison introduced his phonograph...

    No, I get it. In reality, each guy had their own contributions to society and both deserve the respect they've earned.

    How about a nice nerd joke. What do you get when Edison and Tesla work together?

    Not to belittle those giants of industrious thought, but Lester Polsfuss is more along the lines of this modern recording Dad than either of those guys. Besides, everyone knows that Tom was an alien.

    I enjoyed a dinner with Lester about 20 years ago... quite a guy. Definitely a "Founding Father" too.
