    Yeah, I remember those, and 8-tracks, too. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some pesky kids to chase off my lawn!

    Just five more days until Garfield’s birthday. Just have more days. (The comic strip began in 1978, you youngsters who listen to CDs and iPods and don’t know what a “record” is.)

    That would’ve been a REAL age nightmare!! Interesting coincidence… Garfield first appeared in ’78.

    June 19 is the day all right… not only have I heard of a record, I remember when CD’s were brand new. Now, I hear they’ve gone the way of the dinosaur. :)

    Oh God, I remember those too.
    We used to have a record player that could play all three speeds …we’d listen to 33’ds at 45 … or 45’s at 78… Burning Bridges or Age of Aquarius as sung by the Chipmunks.
    (That’s pretty much where the idea for Alvin and the Chipmunks came from.)

    Better a 45rpm than a 45cal.

    An increasing number of albums are released on vinyl these days. The sound is superior to that of CDs but the method of reproducing that sound (turntable and stylus) is not; hence the scratches etc.
    I still have all my LPs and singles even though one of them is valued at over £1000 in collector magazines.

    The laugh is on the record. Pcolli is right. LP sales have increased lately and more and more major artist are releasing their albums on LP’s. In fact quite of few of record stores are actually expanding.

    I remember 78’s. When I was a kid we had a record player that also had a 16 2/3 rpm speed. Although we never owned any 16 rpm records.

    I still have over 500 albums and over 500 45s. I’ve played some of them for my daughters; they’re probably the only grade-school-aged kids in our area who even know what 45s are!

    I think the 16 rpm speed was for playing back dictation discs which were originally recorded at that rate. The wax cylinders were quite versatile as they could also be used as rollers for setting hair and were very good napkin rings.

    There is a song. Cannot remember the title or the singer, because I am over 45, it will come though. But, the lyric said “… put my 45 on…” It is a modern song and I was amazed that a young person would know what a 45 was. Turns out that was her SPF factor for sun protection.
