I <3 the way vinyl records look… just wanted to make a wearable vinyl record shirt: )

For some reason, I was inspired by the concept of “cassingles” – those short-lived, short-playing cassettes that would just have a song or two. Not that a cassingle is going to look any different than any other cassette. The title comes from a line in a song from the first cassingle I ever bought.

The Comeback.

The player piano disc was one of the first audio storage devices. :slight_smile:

Thanks to everyone who helped out last night and this morning. Now can I go back to sleep?


A late night invention.
