Between then and the year my brother went to college, records and 8-tracks went the way of the dodo, and only the radio and speakers still worked, sort of.
My brother took the stereo and used it as a radio and conversation starter in his college apartment.
Now, it is certainly not period appropriate to our home, but we love it and its family history.
When you turn on the radio, the speakers (when they’re working) use our old wooden floors to amplify the sound and you can hear it throughout our home.
The major appliances have been taken off the old lines and placed on their own circuits.
