I remember when I was little, my parents had a turntable along with a massive amount of records. I don't know what became of it, or the records, but I've decided I'm bringin' it back and trying one out for myself. I can only imagine the joy that having a record player would bring into my life. In my mind's eye, I see a hot Summer's day, a light breeze, a tummy full of "healthy" snacks, and the subtle drone of a melody sounding from my very own "talking machine."
First of all, they're just cool. Secondly, they're believed to provide a richer sound. Thirdly, they're cute. Heck, sounds good to me.
