  • Peter Tschmuck


A full-fledged music industry boom characterized the immediate post-war years in the United States. From 1945 to 1946, record sales doubled from $109 to $218 million. In 1947, sales reached a new record high at $224 million. In 1948, however, sales declined by 15% to $189 million, and in 1949 by an additional 8% to $173 million.
