A spokesman for Audio Fairs, an organisation of British makers, said the Public response to this exhibition of stereophonic and high fidelity equipment had been “staggering.” Commissionaires had to close the doors three times yesterday to prevent serious congestion in corridors and demonstration rooms.

No decent Brass Bands down south laddie! I remember the Harrogate shows well although not as far back as 1959 but that looks like a mono record player in the picture to me. Stereo is far too complicated for women.

I reckon it's a PL12d
Now looka here...
I did not say I was a millionaire...
But I said I have spent more money than a millionaire!
Cause if I had kept all my money that I'd already spent,
I would've been a millionaire a looong time ago...
