    I forget what they are called but the other day I saw some suplus company selling those little things that you’d pop in the hole in a 45 rpm record so it could be played on a turntable with a standard 5/16 spindle.

    Oh, Dear Ones. I’m so old, I’m before computers and even Xerox machines. I relate to the 45 and 33/1/3 records. (and radio)
