Too true! Do you still play your recrods? I sometimes do! Must admit, the sound is better on latter sound media. Now days a 45 is not a record ... but a gun!

Your reference to 'monster wheel' set off the old Credence Clearwater chorus of: Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning, Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river.
