Re: Inner sleeves for vinyl LPs

Also advice needed on cheap drying rack.
Just realised that i don't have one, as it was an integrated part of the knosti hand system i had before, which i have now passed to someone else.
I already had l'art du son, recommended as a cleaning fluid

Re: The new Wigwam venue.
