My Nan had this amazing record player within an enormous sideboard in her lounge. The record player played at 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm, and you could stack singles which would plop down onto the turntable when ready. I have memories of listening to a battered old 7” of ‘Martian Hop’ at all those speeds, although, looking back, 78 rpm was possibly a speed too far…
