    I used to back in the 80s all the time, used to walk past the house of a girl I used to fancy and turn it up (not sure what I was expecting to achieve!).
    Would still use one for music at a BBQ or maybe the beach.......... trouble is my large ones take TEN 'D' cells.

      Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

          Is that the record player in the form of a slot to put the record in similar to ones they had in cars? The car ones died the death as the records they played would get scratched due to road vibration

                  OK there were lots on the market in the 1980s, I had a Grundig one that might still be in my parents garage, but might have gone in a clearout, knowing them.

                          I had one or two Heather yeah. One was smaller and the other massive. I recall as well how people took to walking about with Ghettoblasters instead of Portable Cassette Players./ I never subscribed (or even thought of subscribing to the idea/trend) but so so wish I had now!
