Oh yes, they did say that. I think that may give us a date, then.
I was also going to ask if anyone knew of any other examples of
phonograph records used to store data. The only one I'm aware of is
the flexi-discs that came in early-80s computer magazines. It was
either Kilobaud of Interface Age that had them. They'd contain a
carrier tone you could play into a modem (IIRC) and they'd "download"
(ASCII dump, really) the programs from that issue. I have many mags
with the records in them but have never tried decoding one.
