No,actually,not that old! I just remember my grandmother (the English one! My mother's mum! My father's Welsh  side of the family,being more into welsh hymns!) had a 78 of Charlie Kunz,which she used to play on her big old radiogram (Remember those?! A lovely one! It played Lp's & 78's! Huge! Like a big,polished wooden chest,with a lid on top! When they moved to Wales from London,it mysteriously,stopped working! The crappy one with the crackly knobs surviving the arduous journey! ::) :()
I was going to put that a little more politely;but I had to rush out! Apologies,for that! ::)

Apologies not needed but thanks anyway.  ;D Yes, I remember radiograms. My parents had one that also played LPs and 78s. Now that LPs (and even cassettes, I understand) are coming back into fashion, one can only ask if 78s might be next. I shall have to rush out (rush? chance'd be a fine thing) and buy a wind-up gramophone and a Jack Russell to sit in front of the horn!
;D Yes,and they don't use electricity,so economical to run! (Great during a power cut!) The Jack Russell might cost a little more to run! When I called on my grandparents I used to play records on the crappy radiogram that survived. Everytime you adjusted the volume there was a horrible,loud crackle! Even the slightest turn!! ::) :( My grandfather believing in the old waste not want not,converted the defunct radiogram into a clothes chest! They were the hi-fi of their day!! Incidentally,my grandfather (the black sheep of the family until I came along! ;D) didn't like any 'modern composers! Even Sibelius was too 'modern'! Your life would not be worth living if you put on any classical music dated later than 1900! Does that sound familiar?!! ;D
