Let's just think back to the 70's in homes across our great country and remember these fabulously wonderful clunky living room adornments (most likely in style to match that floor model television): The Record playing/8-track listening STEREO!!

I always wanted the stereo my parents had and my dad finally brought it to me last week. My mom packed up their collection of records and 8- tracks. All country/western/bluegrass/gospel. And most importantly - the whole reason for my wanting this stereo - the Christmas albums!!! I would listen to these over and over again every Christmas - the stereo barely got used otherwise.

Unfortunately the 8-track player is on the blink and needs repair --- anyone out there know how or IF there's such a thing as an 8-track player repairman? I may have quite a challenge on my :)

OMG! I so remember that stereo. My parents had one too....not sure if they still have it or not. But it was the same for us, it only got used at Christmas for the Christmas records. We have actually found alot of the same tunes on CD now but it's still not the same. Well, have fun with your new/old record player and 8-track repairman...mmmmmm....good luck with that one. lol.

I remember playing with my Nan`s when I was a kid. We always had a blast. My dad has so many old records-all kinds of music-he even has Cheez and Chong-but we weren`t allowed to listen to that one! lol.
