|45 rpm (rotations per minute) record and a LP (long play) album. I had a cool record player with colored lights that flickered! So rockin'!
|An 8-track cartridge. Everyone I know has had these eaten by their players!
|As useless and silly as keeping the albums was, it pales in comparison to the box of 8-tracks. I finally gave my whole collection of 45s, LPs and 8-tracks to my older brother Jeff because he still has a working 70’s stereo system. He recalls when 8-tracks first came out that he “didn’t think it could get any better than this!”
|Though much more portable, these cassette tapes got eaten also. I learned to splice them in college, which took some talent, only for them to become dinosaurs to CDs. Never leave them in a car!
