45s at MLBSSA: History of the 45

A short history of the 45

45s were developed post-WWII. They were made of vinyl, which was much less fragile than earlier formats. 45s were made to be played in jukeboxes - both in establishments and at home. Because they were so portable, durable and inexpensive, 45s changed the face of music consumption. They remained a standard format until the 1980s.
