My rega record player and vinyl collection has been deemed too ugly for the living room and there's nowhere else to really put it.. besides storage. See you in a few decades, records.

At least it'll be something for the kids to discover when going through the loft after our passing.

That and our old treasure chest of sex toys.

Deem her too ugly to sleep in your bed.

We kept playing a song we found by Al Martino, and when we got bored we would put paper on the turntable and draw spiral patterns with coloured pens.

Is it just me, or is this song a brilliant example of a certain style? Ha! Now you'll have to click it to find out !

Who remembers the days when we didn't actually call them "vinyl" we actually called them "records" or "45s" back in the 60s and 70s???

I sure remember when my grandpa called them "пластинки". This was one of his faves

Records, albums or singles. Never called anything a "45" (Guess that was an American thing). Also twelve-inches (ooer), picture discs, shaped discs and coloured vinyl. Ah, it was a great time. Except when you wanted to play them - watch that needle don't skip and scratch the - too late! Anyone remember "cowboy hats"? And weighting down the arm of your stylus to try to get over cracks, pops and skips (not a new kind of cereal, I do assure you!)?
