RCA 9-JY Phonograph

This cute little phonograph can be plugged into an amplifier or into the Phono input that you'll find on the back of many old radios. Playing only 45 RPM records, this turntable includes a record changer, so it can play several records automatically.

I remember listening to 45s on a player like this when I was a teenager. While playing pool in my buddy's basement, we would listen to stack after stack of his sister's records—great tunes from the 1950s and 1960s. I wish I had those records now!

These little phono changers are pretty common. I have seen them for sale at prices from $5 to $25 in many places.
