celticblues5 Folk 78s of the 40s and 50s (21) RE: Folk 78s of the 40s and 50s 19 Jul 00

This is kind of a tangent to the conversation, but does anyone know where to even buy a player that will play 78's anymore? I hauled a bunch home when my father died (you're right, Marymac, they DO tend to crumble!), but haven't been able to play them. His old player appeared to be beyond repair, and I haven't been able to buy another.

A second question - what is the best way to clean these old records? I'm almost afraid to wipe them off with a cloth, since there are liable to be little crumbles here & there in the grooves.

(To add to the list, his were mainly big band & pop of the time - Nat King Cole, etc.)
