Radio 1 cart player...

I'll be honest, I'm probably finding this just a bit too much fun...

www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/established1967/feature/cartplayer.shtml

It's one of the many little features on the BBC Radio 1 (and others) website to celebrate their 40th birthday.

(I especially like the noises it makes - just like a real Sonifex - and the fact that you have to fast-forward to the beginning to start it again, even if you'd removed the cart.. nice touch!) Cartplayers are still very much beloved by 'traditional' radio fans, despite not sounding nearly as clear as digital.. I'll not go into details about the DJ who wanted to bring his cartplayers to the new studios when the station moved a couple of years ago..!
