    the "old fashioned" looking (wood boxey style) tabletop combo that plays 3 cds, or LP records and has an AM/FM radio?? I've
    seen them advertised a number of times but they are on sale for
    $99 tomorrow and I am tempted. Just wondering what the sound is
    like before I buy one. DDD

    Actually, I've been wondering about that too. That's on my shopping list, but I have never heard one either.

    I've got one. I bought it when I still had a bunch of records.

    I've used the record part but not the radio or tape.

    Remember, it's not a "sound system" (by a long shot!) but it's good enough for me to put in a cd and crank up the tunes and sing along while I'm cleaning the house!

    If it's good enough for you, Suz.........it's good enough for my
    family! I'm going to shop the early bird tomorrow. (Geez, I do
    hate shoppping!) Thanks. DDD

    I got one as a gift last year and I LOVE IT. It was a special gift from my Mom - I have had it plugged in for a year - it's convenient, compact and the sound (while not a BOSE) is very nice.

    Now I know I have to get up and go to the mall in the morning!
    Oh, yuk. Why don't they have door buster specials that start
    at lunch time?????? DDD

    I'll be thinking of you! I'll be up but surrounded by children who get up at the crack of dawn 365 days a year!

    :rofl: Beth, your post reminded me of a much repeated family story about easy child#1. She was 2 and she went to her Gramma and asked
    "Gramma what is a crackadon?" My Mother told her she didn't know
    and to go ask her Mommy. Sure enough. She came to me and asked
    "Mommy what is a crackadon?" I replied that I didn't know but to
    go ask Daddy. She went to her Daddy and with her hands on her hips with great indignation she said "Daddy, do you know what a
    crackadon is?" He said "No, I don't think so." Then easy child raised
    her little voice, stomped her feet and said "WHY do you all tell
    me EVERY night not to be a crackadon and you don't even know what
    one is???????! :smile:

    Yep. Every night we would say softly "now, don't get up at the
    'crack of dawn' and she thought she could morph into a crackadon!

    Eight children later we have never had a crackadon, thank God!
    I do not like mornings. This morning I was at the blankin' store
    by 6:30 and I now have "music box". LOL DDD

    DDD, that story is too cute!

    difficult child used to be a crackadon, too! I was a zombie who learned to make breakfast in my sleep and nap on the couch while she ate. She's always been an extremely slow-eater so that bought me another good hour of sleep.

    I wish I had known about that radio gadget thing. I just got rid of all of my albums cause I had no way to play them.
