Flexi Discs

image
Vinyl records maintain a certain level of popularity these days. But I don't think anyone plans on reviving the Flexi Disc, which ceased production in the year 2000.

Visit this great site for a history of this odd phenomenon. Be sure to look at the Flexi Disc stamps from Bhutan!

i can't imagine the sound quality would be very good concidering the fliexibility. wouldn't that cause sound distortion?

i didn't know hardee's bought burger chef. the one i remember as a kid had to have closed in the late seventies. but then they tore down most of that block for new constuction for business. maybe even then they weren't profitable enough to reopen. a hardee's opened a while later in a different spot. i'm a little fuzzy on exact times, it's been a while. 😊 geesh i'm to young to ramble about the old day this much! :lol:

I don't remember these, but I do remember having vinyl records that were all sorts of different colors. Would be nice if they could do something similar with cds/dvds. Silver is so 1999.

Nethie, Patti, there are colored disks. I had some red ones in the last batch. And yes, I'm talking about the recording side not the top.
