Columbia Record Club allowed you to choose whether you wanted you music sent to you in the form of reel to reel tape, cassette tapes, tapes, or 12 LP vinyl records. I actually ordered the Reel to Reel tape of Alice Copper's "Killer" album!
Here's a project I just finished - an old stereo console that had an old FM radio, tape player and turntable. I gutted the unit, painted it a gun-metal gray, and then crackled with a beige top-coat. It's my new media cabinet!
