Mick Mepham… I’m sold.

Jim Hobbs… Click, crackle, pop, I’m sold (click), I’m sold (click), I’m sold (click) … :/

Alan Esdaile… It keeps jumping. You need to weigh down the arm with a coin.

Jane Hartley… I was just going to say that Alan!   Still got some centres somewhere!

Peter Pursglove… I remember the old auto plays the dansette when you loaded a stack of records to sit back and listen to them slipping and sliding ha ha and the little things you put in the middle of the juke box discs so you could play them ,now those were the days of real music ha ha ha

Peter Fairless… Still got boxes of singles! Restored Dansette record player  … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyisLYGRGDg

Jane Hartley…  I have all my singles and albums too!

Jim Hobbs…  Me too, but I embraced the new technology for playing out. It’s just a shame that most of today’s music doesn’t deserve to be stored on any format, old or new.

Dave Nattress… Still got all my old vinyl albums – a very few became warped and scratched and stuck in the groove and I have these now on CD. Also some real old rarities – rare on vinyl, now collected on CD. Would never get rid of the vinyls. I do play some but you know it seems like you’ve no sooner put one on, sat down etc. and with a typical play-time of 15 – 20 minutes over 5 – 6 tracks it’s over and time to turn it over. But, remember the days of walking round the town to or from your friend’s place with a really “cool” album cover under your arm carefully positioned to show just that – you had a cool album. Yes, the old Dansette – took 6 singles?. But I used to play LP’s singly – too precious – maybe it wasn’t a good idea to stack albums – or maybe you couldn’t do so – can’t remember . Like so much of my old stuff – just where did the old record player go?

Eric Cawthraw… Yep, still got all my LPs and singles – and you can play them backwards as well!
