I got a kick out of the Cheap'n'nasty Tops record. They were poor remakes of the popular tunes of the day, by unknown recording artists.
They were sold in the five'n'dimes.
Yup....Tops and Modern Sound...bleah! They had a faux Beatles cover group called The Doodlebugs!

The ultimate is the Vassos styled GE phonograph attachment of circa 1940. The locomotive tone-arm is screaming art-deco. I'm looking for an RCA at the moment, but if anyone has one of these for sale I will surely consider it!

The phono is a model 521, three tube amp. Riders shows it used either minuiture or octal equivalents.

I had one of those Emersons. Took it apart to fix, never got to it went through a couple of moves and sold or donated it as a basket case.... Miniature tubes in the one I had.

That's the way things work around here!
The entries make an otherwise boring topic a bit more interesting.

I'm just kidding. I've done it myself at times too. I've had an ad out here and ARF for the phono for months now with no luck anyway. I'll just scan the Net for one. Like everything else, it's just a matter of time before one will turn-up.
