Smile Re: Question on Recording speeds

Hi,
I was recently given a boxful of 78s, among them were the usual HMVs, Deccas, etc. But there were also some Columbia discs, mainly with 'humorous monologues' recorded thereon which spin at 80 rpm.
It's curious that the standard ended up 2 rpm slower.
Cheers, Pete.
