I have a mint issue of "Mrs Mills....How to play the piano and scare men off regardless of your personality"....also looking for offers.....she has a little bit of ringwear and is clearly warped but I'd take her over the "I am the Eagle so can't smell your wind" singer above every day of the week.

Ok, your name is on his colourful jacket.  I believe that you can get similar jackets at Moosas in Harare

The Bles Bridges LP is only R20,00.  I played about 10 seconds of 2 tracks today and before he started singing, it was ok

If Alty comes along, he might let you play some of it on his turntable

A good turnout, not as busy as the previous one but a lot of trading.  As usual, many new faces came through the door.  Our Audiophile Deli was a hit and we sold R800 worth of food

The next Vinyl Faire will be on Sunday 31st July.

For dealers who want to have a more frequent fair, I have asked the Vice Principal of WBJS about this, but you must bear in mind that the Ballet Club and Keep Fit Class also use the hall on a Sunday so we have to accommodate them.  Then the hall is protected by the Historical Society since it was built in 1892 so use is restricted to approved visitors

I think every second month is not bad. It's not great. But it's a good in-between...

As for the attendance. The long weekend played a role. Lots of the 'clientèle' were away for the long weekend...  The one before I had also punted on FMR and various 'what is happening in Cape Town' type websites... Was too busy this time...

The dancer admitted that he got a bit of backache after doing his exercises. 

I can always ask my friend from the Belly Dancing Company to put on a show...

I put a notice on FMR but nobody else

Good afternoon all,

I was driving on the R27/Marine Drive yesterday afternoon and I spotted this 1 speaker's top visible through the windows of Acoustic Solutions. Was white in colour....reminded me of the B&W Nautilus...what were those?

Either Devialet phantoms (white round balls) or a vivid audio G series speaker (stubby  dick with an extra long floppy folded over foreskin)
Dick actually designed the Nautillus and the Vivid range
