If I asked my kids if they knew what a record player was they would probably look at me as if I was a marsh mallow who had just flown in from mars, and when I did that was exactly the reaction. We now have a record player sitting on our sideboard in the living room that gets used regularly. But what is it about the love of records and the record player that is deep rooted with in us that are old enought to remember them. I will never forget the first record player I bought for myself. I bought it from a friend in school for Five pounds which is just over six dollars. Below is a similar to the one I got.
