I used it again just then. Wanna know how I did that?

Yes, I'm old enough to remember vinyl records...I still have a bunch, and a turntable on which to play them!

As I said, I still have probably a couple of hundred albums, dozens of 45's, and even a few box sets! I've always thought vinyl sounded better than just about anything they've come up with over the years! Check out this article, and the surprising new statistics regarding good ol' vinyl records!
