Re: Tenting tonight on the old campground

The recording as heard here is in the key of A major. A bugle in A would be unusual, in my experience, whereas a trumpet in Bb can play bugle calls with all open fingering (i.e., no valves deoressed) and it would sound in the key of Bb---much more likely. No doubt in my mind whatever that this recor...

Re: Does anyone sell a rubber flange for this columbia reproducer?

It's a bit more complicated than that. There's a perimeter flange as well as a raised center hub to account for.

Re: Harry Sooy Memoirs of VTMCo

Check out the address given by Sooy for his first house, at 429 Chambers Ave. in Camden. It's a nice row home on a very well-preserved block: https://www.google.com/maps/place/429+Chambers+Ave,+Camden,+NJ+08103/@39.9396275,-75.1191092,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c6c8e5b4008965:0xf8a5ee9c85b5a180...

Re: Vera Lynn: We'll meet again...

It's not exactly a disc recording, but another "obsolete" technology, DVD: the closing credits of "Dr. Strangelove," where Vera Lynn sings "We'll Meet Again." The context makes this one bitterly ironic.

It's actually called the Johnson Victrola Museum in Dover, DE. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

Re: How do you prefer to store your records? Albums or Sleeves? Combo?

That particular model of IKEA bookshelf (Expedit) has vertical dividers every linear 12" (+/-), so the weight is well supported. I have my 78 albums on IKEA's "Billy" bookshelves, which come in two widths (23" and 31"). The 10" albums do nicely on the 31" upper she...

Beautiful machine, Jerry. Does the price include the 35mm film canister? :) Yes, I does include that very rare needle container.
