It's not a song I can't get out of my head...

it's a radio!

Check out this beauty (at least I think it is!) at a local thrift store. 

I *almost* bought it last week, but 1) James and I didn't think that it was practical (well, maybe more him than me!), 2) it is HEAVY, and 3) I didn't have $30 in cash on me and they didn't take plastic.  If they had, it might already be at LaNa!

Where would I put it?  I'm thinking in the basement that we plan to makeover VERY soon.  The speakers sound great, it tuned perfectly (and we were in a basement!), and I don't have a turntable for the 1 record I still own.  And, I'm convinced that vinyl is making a comeback as my friend Maureen in 8th grade is all about records!

What do you think?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Sounds like you gotta get it!!

While I loved the idea, I decided to NOT get the radio. It weighed as much as a refrigerator and we just didn't know where we would put it. Plus, the turntable wasn't working - not that it couldn't be fixed, but all signs pointed to no on this one. Maybe something smaller will come around and just as retro!
