  A distinctive little console that squeezes an AM/FM radio, automatic record changer and album storage into a relatively small footprint.  No lid means no disturbing the knick-knacks.

  Operation of this player is akin to that of a dishwasher in that once your selection of platters, er, records is loaded onto the changer, you shut the drawer and control all cycles from the outside.  You can start the motor at your leisure and change selections at any time with the push of a button. 

M = motor on/off  R = reject
  The rear-facing turntable is quite small not to mention rather bashful:  the drawer only opens 6½ inches!  I had to kind of wedge the camera in to get this shot.
