IMO, there will be a nostalgic demand for records and record players for a long time. My grandpappy still plays his 78s!

Vinyl and other oil-based products will be around until their production helps to deplete the planet's oil reserves. We should be OK for a few more years, though...

It's funny but I'm torn between two points of view on vinyl. I've collected it since I was 12 (25 years) and I've loved djing with it over the years but I prefer the flexibility of playing off a laptop (with Live) these days and I quite like the convenience of buying wavs online (when the mastering isn't rubbish). And, as you say there's the environmental angle too.

Oh well.

do people take care to use different needles for 78s than on standard vinyl?? a coworker of mine is tripping out trying to find smaller needles to play 78s for some shindig of his at the same studio 'wolfman jack' used in the movie american graffiti (I thought that part was cool.) I've seen DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist rip through 78 sets but I thought they were just using m44-7s.

So that's what records look like...
What is that? A .38?

38, 39, whatever it takes.
