    I've never understood the reason the IU does not put more into its football program.

    They are too busy paying off all the basketball coaches they had to fire during contract (Kelvin Sampson, Bobby Knight) and overpaying for their current coach (Tom Crean) while also spending all their money on their fu-fu liberal arts programs........

    muahahahahaha...... screw IU!

    Are you, perchance, a Purdue fan?

    I think Indiana is blessed to have two great public universities like Purdue and IU.

    Purdue's school of engineering is undoubtedly among the best -- not just a treasure of the State of Indiana, but also of the nation.

    You have every reason to be a proud Boilermaker -- just don't pound down too many of them! :)

    ? Or is that guano?

    In the latter case, it would be kind of amusing -- as it would hearken back to the very first post in this thread.

    It appears to be a Kenwood to me.
    (EDIT: although I don't recognize the precise model)
    Here are some similar ones from www.alliedcatalog.com (1971)

    028.jpg

    The tt looks like (???) a Miracord -- also sold as "Benjamin Miracord" in the US and also under the Radio Shack/Realistic brand.

    @mhardy, you are right, it was a Kenwood. I bought it used from West Coast Audio or Stereo, something like that. Probably got the TT there as well.

    Shure cartridge but don't remember the model. Got the V15 when it became available but pretty sure it wasn't out till a little later.

    If you look beside the Chicago album you can see the little cleaner brush I used for the vinyl. Discwasher or something like that I think. There was a little [email protected] type thing that you put cleaning fluid on and inserted it inside the roller brush.

    This beats the hell out of your current car... >:)

    One of the few regrets in my life was selling that car. If I owned it now, it would be worth more than my new car. But alas, it is what it is. I will suffer through with what I have.

    our 32nd (anniversary, that is) was this past Thursday -- we got married in B-more on a Preakness Saturday (1983); consequently we had a little trouble booking a limo for the wedding...
