    Never bought one, never handled one, don’t even know how to play one on a (turn table?). Parents had a box in the basement.

      I was surprised to read that people are buying vinyl again. I wonder what the new “record players” will be like.

    I am too young for vinyl. But my parents had a record player from their youth. We didn’t have many tapes or cds or fancy audio equipment. My brother got a box of random records once and Janet Jackson’s Control was the one that was must current of them (and by then it wasn’t anywhere near new). I played the heck out of that album!

    I have a record player with a cd player and FM/AM radio.

    I collect vinyl records. People donate boxes filled with old vinyl records to the Goodwill store. I painted my parents old records (45s)made a collage, framed them. They are hanging in my office.

    I have a rather large and beloved record collection that I have schlepped across country more times than i would like to admit. Sometimes I wish my collection was more easily moveable, like baseball cards or stamps–but i like the permanence of records and the cover art and that makes it worthwhile to haul it with me from place to place.
