My wife just bought and it arrived yesterday a turntable. She has been saving her 45's and 33's and finally bought a new turn table.

She was like a little kid for the first time playing all her golden oldies, Smokey Robinson, Johnny Mathis, Bobby Vinton etc. She was in heaven. I got back from a mtg. and she was going to make dinner for me (I usually make dinner) but she got engrossed in her new toy I had to fend for myself.

If the weather is nice Friday I'm going to put up our tent canopy and hook her turn table up to my professional Bose system and she can play all night. Have to break out the wine.

Here's a little trivia question for you record buffs.

On average, how many grooves are there on "one side" of a 33 record?

First correct answer wins a free trip to the back of my van. HA HA HA

There's something to be said about records. Some songs just aren't the same after they've been digitally remastered.

There is one groove per side, they are just very long.

The turntable is just a player/AM/FM/FM stereo radio. I have most of the oldies as MP4's.

Doug you're right, with a record you get that warmth from the sound that digitized songs don't have. The Bose does really bring out all the sound that you lose with conventional speakers.

I took a CD/DVD label sheet and via a website created a 45 record label titled Merlot 2008 etc. Put it on a bottle of wine for her. She should be home soon and since she is off work tomorrow I presume it will be opened tonight.

I'm working on a new type of label for some wine. Taking old 45 record labels and making wine labels for my wine. They would be printed on the CD/DVD avery labels. It would be a great conversation piece while you're drinking.

When I do a few I'll post a couple. Gotta watch as they are copywrited.

One long groove. You Da Man!
It would have to be one long groove for the needle to start at the begining and end at the end. Wonder how many people on here never had records....You can't play a CD backwards and hear demonic voices.....::::

You sure don't hear people talk about albums much any more. Some kids will probably only see one in a museum.
I wish I had some of the old music I had back in the 70's and early 80's that I lost with a load of vinyl.
I had a big collection of Steppenwolf I just can't find any of. Also some off the wall stuff I wonder if I'll ever be able to replace, even in cd's.
