Personally, I have a record player and a couple of crates of records in storage
in Australia. I think I gave away my cassette tapes many years ago. I remember
my dad used to have an eight-track player in his Scimitar (another thing that
didn't go anywhere, long term.)

What scares me are the people I meet who don't own a record player, /and/ who
have no idea how they work. (I mean, I thought most people would have figured
it out, at least from the pop music hints, if nothing else.)
