The important thing is that they finally decided to offer properly-
sized 78 needles to match their turntable speed! Sadly, these are
NOT diamond...and anything less than a diamond wears out quickly
from playing abrasive shellac-compound discs.
Crosley, of course, is a famous old name in home radio (as well as
early "compact cars" before ecology had even been thought of...!)
but whether this "Crosley" is a descendant firm, or simply some
company over in the land of Hooflungdung that managed to scoop
up the trademarks and "goodwill" for about 17 kabongs...
