The needle was broken, but while cleaning it up, I found a spare, brand new, still in the packaging.
It works great. I'm not quite sure of the era, although I would guess late 60's to early 70's. I reminds me a lot of my mother's (which she still has), but hers was clearly a '70's piece with a lot of plastic faux wood and scarlet red speaker grills.
I've been enjoying listening to Herb Alpert, Perry Como, Nat King Cole and Dean Martin. I try to keep the records in the same era as the player. Just wouldn't seem right listening to Huey Lewis on this.
It's current residence is my basement as I already have a 1940's console radio in the living room. I'm looking forward to playing some of my Christmas albums while setting up my aluminum Christmas tree next month.
