Audio Book Anniversery!

Interesting article out from the Independent on the 75th anniversary of audio books.

A few fascinating tidbits here.  Did you know, for example, that audio books:
"started as an aid for battle casualties and elderly people with failing eyesight."

I poked around a bit online and can't find a reference for "first audio book ever."  It sounds like it would be something from the 1930s intended for veterans...I suppose it's too much to hope that one of those got digitized along the way?
