"In 1973, Qiu Zhoulong, who had just graduated from university, joined the China Record Group and became a plate-making engineer for vinyl records.
Three years later, Qiu and his colleague was assigned by the company to study in Sweden. They brought back the first flow production line for vinyl record with stereo tracks in China. Since then, China has had the first batch of home-made stereo records.
Qiu has worked in China Record Group for nearly 40 years as a plate-making engineer for vinyl records, and is in his late sixties.
As Qiu put it, "his life is like a vinyl record:" the birth is like lead-in groove; there are wonderful climaxes throughout his life, like dynamic grooves; there are also unavoidable troughs, like those flat grooves."
