In 1892, after getting fed up with Thomas Edison’s smear campaign against his alternating current system, Nikola Tesla decided to flip the script and use Edison’s phonograph to create the first ever mixtape under the pseudonym "King WZRD." He went so funky on the mixes that in 1893, the Westinghouse Corporation was awarded the contract to light the Chicago World’s Fair. And this is all made up. Happy Sunday everyone!
