2. IN­TRO­DUCE THEM TO A RECORD PLAYER.

FamilyFun - - NEST -

Now, granted, this isn’t for ev­ery­body: It doesn’t al­ways work to have a 2-yearold’s peanut but­ter–cov­ered hands around a pre­ci­sion de­vice that doesn’t play if you bump it. But some years ago, I ven­tured into the at­tic to re­trieve my old and spi­der-in­fested col­lec­tion of records, and on many nights since, we’ve been charmed by this relic from the past. We page through the mas­sive art, make jokes about bizarre 1970s-era artist names (“Meat Loaf?” my eighth-grader said one night, shak­ing his head in be­mused dis­be­lief. “Why don’t peo­ple make any sense?”), and in­dulge in the novel idea of lis­ten­ing to some­thing straight through, in­stead of fast­for­ward­ing or com­mand­ing Alexa to play some­thing dif­fer­ent.
