The Record Locator

<>
The Record Locator

The Record Locator was a featured portion of the "Disc Jockey" system that was marketed by the Conrad Corporation in 1957. The "Disc Jockey" held ninety 45 rpm records, and one of the main selling points was the ability to clean your records by packing them into the "Disc Jockey" and then dunking them in "luke-warm water in which a mild detergent has been added."

I am sure many nice 45 rpm records met their death in this manner in 1957. I have it on good authority that the real "Record Locator" is a Canadian guy named Don, who lives in an underground bunker with every vinyl record, cd, cassette, LP, Edison Cylinder, mini disc, mp3, and any other sound recording ever made, in the world. Really!!!
