High Tech Record Selector

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Forget an iPod, this “High-Tech Record Selector” could hold up to 24 albums. Sometimes referred to a the “Disc-O-Selector.”

When advertised on television, K-Tel portrayed the selector as automatic showing the LP albums  mysteriously sorting themselves. “It runs fast OR slow! Stops automatically! Finger Touch Starting!”.

Secret to a Successful Relationship!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

In 1964, Roddenberry proposed the original Star Trek TV series to Desilu Studios as “like Wagon Train, a Wagon Train to the stars.” The network rejected the show’s first pilot, “The Cage”, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Enterprise Captain Christopher Pike; however, NBC executives, still impressed with the concept, made the unusual decision to commission a second pilot: “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. The first regular episode (“The Man Trap”) of Star Trek aired on Thursday, September 8, 1966.

In the first chapter of the series that started a cultural phenomenon, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy project humanity into the 23rd century with compassion, boldness, and a curiosity to meet the unknown. For more than 40 years, viewers hungry for optimism have found inspiration from Gene Roddenberry's visionary allegory, hooked on the thought-provoking moral tales, the humor, the romance, the philosophy, and the inspired gadgetry aboard the first U.S.S. Enterprise. Now these remastered adventures look and sound even better than ever, with dozens of new and higher-detailed visual effects that blend seamlessly into the episodes you fondly remember.
