Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day: Red #Dansette at the @V_and_A

Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day! Join the Rock'n'Roll London walk this (and every Friday) afternoon at 2:00p.m meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station

DC Editor Adam writes…

You've got about a month left to catch the excellent You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966 - 1970 exhibition at the V&A. I'll be posting my last-chance-to-see review next week.

In the meantime, just one observation…

At the V&A you will see a record player identical to this one

It's a Dansette Popular from around 1962. The one in the pic is my own (no pics allowed at the V&A show, I'm afraid) and it's still going strong. I still use it regularly.

NOTHING makes one feel quite so old as seeing one's own stuff in a museum.

If I may make a signage suggestion to the V&A… perhaps a notice, akin to the ones that make us aware of strobe lighting or adult content, worded along the lines of "Warning: Parts of This Exhibit Will Make You Feel Like A Right Old Fart".

Full info on You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966 - 1970 at the V&A (booking strongly recommended) can be found here:
