That was truly a pain in the ass, I was stationed at a NAS in Virginia, odd or even plates to get gas, but driving a 67 Mustang with a 390 was killer. Would park at the base gas station overnight. Damn :lipssealed:

Not quite. They actually had the larger hole as an attempt by RCA to sell their turntables. It's an example of the earliest form of proprietary music format :crackup:

Who knew a little plastic doohickey would allow them to be played on a standard (speed adjustable) turntable :giggle:
Sony came out with the BetaMax VCR and it was excellent, but Panasonic came out with the VHS/VCR that took over the Market.....why, they gave out the machines free to schools, It didn't take long to overwhelm the market and the Betamax died out.

I love this thread. You guys make me feel young. Never owned a record player. I did regularly go in my older brother's room and put the records in different sleeves just to screw with him.

How about Cinemax back in the day, trying to catch a glimpse of Morgan Farchild's goodies between the squiggly lines on the TV (we never paid for Cinemax lol)

Actually that is not what happened. It's way too long of a story to get into here but it was JVC that came out with VHS, not Panasonic (which did own a majority stake in JVC). And although they did give units to education that is not what killed Beta. It was the alliances with US manufactures at the time. Sony went to Zenith, JVC/Panasonic went to RCA. Big mistake on Sony's part. The Beta system was always superior to VHS but it didn't matter. Same thing happened with Plasma and LCD TV. The better product doesn't always win. Sony had the best TV at the time but blew it big tome with video. At least until 8MM came out.

By the way, the reason I know this is because I worked for Panasonic. I was there when it happened.

Oh, you kids. Cinemax was a newbie. Started in 1980. HBO started in 1972. And it wasn't cable. It was OTA on a microwave dish. :)
