    Yeah, like, what’s record? (Oh, good grief.)

    A disc made of vinyl which was used to play back sounds….but that’s not important now.

    Peter’s been taking parent management lessons from Bart and Lisa Simpson.

    Forget records, he’s probably lucky if he knows what CD’s are in this day and age of digital music. Meanwhile, I’ve got a teenaged niece who not only knows what records are, but she actually owns some. There are some people born in the ’80’s and later who DO know about those things. TV, movies, and the like just LOVE to harp on people’s ignorance about past innovations in music, phones, etc.

    Vinyl is still in great demand by DJs.

    I have over 500, along with over 500 45s. I also have a working turntable and play them for my daughters, who are 11 and 8-1/2. It’s gotten so that, when we see someone “touching the black part” on TV, we ALL cringe! (The commercial with the cat DJs drive us all crazy!)

    CDs are one thing that seem to have become “obsolete” way too quickly.

    Keep in mind that this strip dates back from the early 2000’s. Actually my teenage sons know more about LP’s – now that they are going through a revival of sorts which will surely be short-lived – than about CD’s.

    In my family, those are still popular. We also use flip-phones and a Wii instead of smartphones and a Wii U.

    I’m an old timer. I still talk about “taping” shows.


    I still remember the days when telephone signals came out of a wire in the wall, and television came via the airwaves.

    Nowadays we don’t even have to beg for this stuff; so many things are capable of playing mp3s. I know of a rice cooker that plays music whenever it’s finished.

    MP3, the predecessor to the iPod.

    Soon it will be “What’s an MP3 player?”.
