After going without for far too long (and having an acquaintance string me along for an extra six months with unfulfilled promises of selling me hers) I finally broke down and bought a new turntable. If you are a PR person sending me CDs in the mail, you might want to hold off for the next three months, as I have loads of LPs to catch up on and a few familiar favorites to revisit. A quick list of what's getting spins:
