Retro Music: Dansette Junior Deluxe Record Player (1969)


My first record player. The Dansette Junior Deluxe single speaker was a 1969 Christmas present that was much loved at the time. First record on it, from memory, was a double sided Disney 45 with "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" on the A side with a recording from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs "Heigh Ho.." on the B. Hey, I was six for the love of Mike. It was a great little machine. Best described as chunky and kid proof. I remember lugging it around using the handle on the side and sat in the backyard with Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody" belting out mono style. They don't make 'em like this anymore which is a crying shame.
