My first 45 was Leo Sayer’s “When I Need You“. I played it over and over and over again … drove my mother absolutely bonkers, I’m sure. It was her fault though, she gave it to me! The first record I saved up for and bought myself was “Rio” by Duran Duran … by 1984 I was the biggest Duranimal out there …
If you’re like me, you may be feeling a bit nostalgic for the 80s, so why not knit a record?
Are you old enough to have had a “first record”?

This is a solid novelty record player that’s great for people who wish to keep their vinyl collection alive or start a new one. It would work well for a parent who wants to teach their kids about records, for a student who wants a few records in their dorm room, or for playing records during a dinner party – i.e. it’s for personal listening and definitely not for audiophiles. Although perfectly adequate, the built-in speakers are not what you would call amazing. It’s very small and extremely portable. I love the fact that you can also use it as speakers for a music device like an ipod – this makes it a great party accessory.
