Oh yeah, I remember lp albums and the 45s, and I had the adapter for it. I listened to my private stash of records all the time in my bedroom as a pre-teen and teen.I still have one. Of course I have not used it for years and years. I might have to put a record on it to see if it still plays. I come from a time when 45's were still around. You would use and adapter to play them on a 33 turntable.
