    Did you have any of these?

    Some objects come and go as the world whizzes by. Black and White tvs, 8-track players, record players, computers that no longer exist. Which ones did you have?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Did you have any of these?

    You needed to have an "all of the above".

    I had an 8-track, record player, Atari 800 with cassette drive (it took about 15 minutes to load a program), and before our Atari 2600, we had black and white PONG.

    Gods, I'm ancient.

    Re: Did you have any of these?

    I had a record player when I was a kid. The first records I ever owned were: The Grease Soundtrack, Neil Diamond's Jazz Singer Soundtrack, and Disco Duck.

    Re: Did you have any of these?

    Whoops, kinda forgot to make the poll multiple choice....

    I had a "portable" record player as well (portable in those days meant it was the size of a small briefcase when you closed the lid and had a handle). I had the Thriller album on vinyl, along with a whole lot of kid's records (Sesame Street, etc)

    I know, I'm old.....I had all of those also.
    Plus:
    An open-reel tape recorder.
    A VCR that used open-reel tape
    An Atari 800 computer with cassette drive
    A camcorder that had a seperate recording section
    A LaserDisc player (still have it)

    Re: Did you have any of these?

    We had all except the Commodore 64 my dad purchased the IBM pc jr instead in 1984. At the time the price was a steap $1,300 bucks. Looking back it did hardly anything.

    We had a black & white tv in my play room for years I hated watching tv on B&W! The 8track system was great. It was Disco all the way for me I danced and sang donna summers countless afternoons.

    No fair you cant vote for more than one!

    I had the first three and an Atari 2600 (aka the VGU, or something like that before they tacked on 2600 to it). In fact I still have the Atari and it works like a charm!

    We have Atari and still play it. My husband loves the Circus Atari game. I Think I still have Disco Duck. Ahh, the memories. Things have really changed over the years.
