Do you remember having a record collection and putting your favourite record on the turntable, lining up the needle and placing it gently within the groove? Or perhaps you used to have a big clunky Walkman that you used to play your cassette tapes while jogging? Or maybe you remember wiping the fingerprints from a CD and carefully placing in your CD player, hoping it wouldn’t skip?
