Victrola

 

A friend was explaining something yesterday and using the analogy of tuning a radio. We laughed as no one tunes a radio anymore, not with a knob, so of course the variability of listening to static is gone. Poof! No more analogy for zeroing in on a problem. This of course made me think of the island of broken toys. It made me think of my grandmother's Victrola. It's been decades since anyone said: "Crank up a song!"
