In the world of music downloads and satellite radio, its almost a thing of the past for people to actually own music that they can hold in their hands anymore. Of course we have MP3 players and CD players like most people do, but we also have some older technological jewels of the musical kind in our house.
For example….this thing of beauty…the 8 track player…with actual 8 tracks! I’m sure this thing is older then some of you reading this post. It belonged to my husbands grandparents and he recently agreed to take it off their hands (after asking them if he could have it…LOL).
Some of you may have had a box like the one shown below when you were young-the portable turntable. You can’t see it in this pic, but it has the classic denim inspired case. We only have a few of the small records (including this Strawberry Shortcake story), but a few dozen bigger ones given to us from family members.
For the past 4 years, I have been purchasing my hubby vinyl for birthdays and Christmas’s. He wants to get a new record player this year to start enjoying his growing collection. I wouldn’t know WHY he wouldn’t want to play them on the one we already have…would you??
Come see what other technology was captured over at I Should Be Folding Laundry.
