Shipping Piano Rolls by USPS Media Mail
By D. L. Bullock

I would say that piano rolls still qualify for Media Mail in two ways:
(1) they are certainly recorded music, but for all the youngsters
working for the Post Office, they are (2) computer-readable media.
The player piano was the second external data storage media computer
system,  the first one being the spinning jenny which wove cloth in the
mid 1800's.
