Update: I contacted the seller who sent me the LP that was broken, and sent them careful photo documentation of the damage, and they have decided to kick back my $20. That's great. I have to steel myself to throw out the disc now. I have a hard time letting go of things, which is why I am such a pack rat I guess.

It's good you got the refund though, that's nice at least. I'm sorry you have to throw the record away. :(

I've offered you my jazz 78s from the 30s, right?

You may have done, and I probably said thanks but I have no room for anything like that anymore. In fact, if you want some 78s I have a lot of them!

Are they rare? If they're a bunch of Dinah Shore sides, you could probably make them into clocks, but there might be a real rarity in there.

That's not a bad collection. Those would probably pull down some bills if they are clean copies. That Scatman Crothers disc, for one. And Helen Grayco was married to Spike Jones for a while, a Jones collector might want that. I don't recognize the Sachmo or Ellington sides so they might be of interest to somebody. Ever consider ebaying them?

I have looked at ebay for the three books, and they are selling for about $25 each. Also, I don't want to ship all the discs separately. I want to find one person I can give them to, package them really well in one big package and send it. Or sell it locally on CL which is where I sold the 300 LPs Grandpa had. But I had no interest in the 78s on CL back in 2011.

The only thing to do is to get a cheap turntable that spins 78. I got one at a yard sale that is clinging on to dear life. It was an old school AV player, has the school name stencilled on the top.

I need to get something that runs on USB so I can play it through my computer's speakers.

One of those little Crosley turntables, which can plug into a USB and also speeds up to 78. I would have one by now if they didn't sell them at Urban Outfitters, which they do, and which I never go into.

I can probably find something at Amazon. That's low priority right now though, for money, hahahahaha.
