I remember most of those. I can't believe anyone bought a Flow-Bee.

I did have a couple of those K-Tel records--and I remember one memorable Christmas Eve when my siblings and I were watching tv and an ad for the record cleaner came on. "What fool would put their precious records into that piece of junk?" I asked rhetorically (even as an adolescent, I was a demure, soft- spoken sort). I saw my brother and sister exchange looks. You guessed it--one of them had gotten me the record cleaner!

/Can't remember if I ever used it. This story is now a family legend.

Great story, and I hope you kept the record cleaner. It's now an artifact of a Golden Age.

No--sadly, it's long gone. I also remember I had a record flipper thing (also from K-Tel) where you would put your albums into these little slots and (supposedly-- I could never make it happen), at the touch of a finger, you could just flip through your record collection. I quickly realized an old milk crate was more efficient storage.

Love the story, Deb. But no Flow-Bee?

When we were kids (the Dark Ages) we had 45s (I still have over 500) and needed a little yellow plastic adapter to be able to play them on a record player. Some of us (like Jackie) had little record players that played nothing else.
