    Universal Studios Fire Destroyed Hundreds of Thousands of Master Tapes in 2008

    https://www.vulture.com/2019/06/thou...2008-fire.html

    Based on new reporting from the New York Times, the Universal Studios fire from 2008 may have been “the biggest disaster in the history of the music industry.” In a feature called “The Day the Music Burned,” it is alleged that hundreds of thousands of master tapes from recording artists — among them dozens of legends — may have been destroyed in the fire, with some catalogues being wiped out entirely.

    On this day in history ... July 9 1937

    A fire at 20th Century Fox's film storage facility in Little Ferry, New Jersey, destroyed most of the studio's silent films.
