Just like watching "March of the Penguins" to learn more about them and
their environment, watching "Scratch" will show you an interesting subculture,
who may well keep the vinyl record alive.
Oh yes, as I understand it, the needles are made for scratching. Radio
stations used to "scratch" the intros to cue up a 45. I learned the hard way at

There's also a film titled "Vinyl" but I haven't seen it yet.
