How's Your Memory?

Have you ever seen one of these? 
Ever use one? 
Amazing little piece of audio mechanics.

45-rpm Record Player
Sun Studios
Memphis, TN
(That means the little disk with the big center hole turned at the rate of 45 revolutions/minute. It was the intermediate step between the big, clunky disks that turned at 78 revolutions/minute and the "long-playing" disks that would turn at 33 1/3 rpm.

Gee- I am becoming a living link with history!)
