We had an old record player a lot like this one. It was an RCA, I remember the classic picture of a dog sitting next to a gramophone on the inside cover. My parents kept it in the living room as a piece of furniture even though we did not listen to records or the radio very often.....usually only at Christmas. It's featured in a lot of photos, it was one of the best places to get a birthday photo done. That's me on my 2nd birthday.
