We had this neighbour the only one to own a gramaphone As a kid we would visit that house often just to listen to songs that came out of that contraption. We were not allowed to touch it and the owner would hover around just so that none of us meddled with it.
Despite all the supervision my little brother shifted that needle and hell broke loose. He later said he just wanted to experiment.
Much water has flowed under the bridge since then. It is now youtube that provides all the music. The gramaphone, the deck, the tapes, CDs even music downloaded from the Net is all outdated.
Youtube provides all what we want.
Did you ever own a gramaphone?
