People often throw out old non-working record players.  I rescued a couple of them and made frames for the turntables and gave them easel backs so they hang on the wall or stand on their own.  I made gifts of them to my sons displaying vintage vinyls of their favorite musicians.
Audie likes the Beach Boys...especially Brian Wilson.
Erics a die-hard Johnny Cash fan.  He prefers to keep his standing easel-style.
