Over the last couple of weeks we've been talking about the killer little mics mounted in Neutrik connectors available from Naiant.com. Well, we just had to know more so we got a hold of Jon O'Neil, the owner, chief inventor and product specialist at Naiant.

Answer To Last Week's Trivia Question:
Q: What was the first record to sell a million copies?
A: There were a lot of really good guesses, but none that went back in time quite far enough. There may have been some confusion as noted by Tony Butterworth over at the Home Made Hit Show. His answer was Perry Como's Catch A Falling Star, which the RIAA's own web site says was the first Gold single that was...and here's the important part...."officially" certified by the RIAA, which was founded in 1952.
The original "gold record" awards were presented to artists by their own record companies to publicize the achievement of 1,000,000 sales. The first of these was awarded by RCA to Glenn Miller in February 1942, celebrating 1.2 million sales of Chattanooga Choo Choo.
The 78-rpm commercial version of the song was recorded on May 7, 1941 for RCA Victor's Bluebird label and became the first to be certified a gold disc on February 10, 1942. The transcription of this award ceremony can be heard on the first of three volumes of RCA's "Legendary Performer" compilations released by RCA in the 1970s.
Since Tony's answer was technically correct in the context of the RIAA, we're declaring him this week's winner and he takes home a copy of Guitar And Drum Trainer courtesy of Ryan Smith over at RenegadeMinds.com. Congratulations Tony!
See you next week!
