Soundwave Research Laboratories Investigator
Chris Regan at AES Paris investigating mechanical music reproduction apparatus.
Gramophone, Victrola and Diamond Disc systems developed in the early 1900's quickly led to the production of mass market music, the Hit Record, and record deals. Radio didn't take off until the late 20's, so there was at least a decade when record sales comprised the sole channel to consumers.
Chris looks like Patrick McGoohan in an old episode of Danger Man (Secret Agent in the US).
