I have no turntable at the moment, but I do have a large vinyl collection. When I was in jr. high and high school, cassette tapes were replacing vinyl as the thing people would buy. For some reason I never trusted them. I always bought vinyl, then taped it for playing in my walkman. I was the queen of mix tapes for years. Now, I have a huge pile of cds, just in time for new technology to come around.
