The Quest for a Stylus
To Plymouth to see Grace Rickard and Lorraine. And to buy a stylus. You know, one of those tiny needles that somehow, through the miracle of science, transmits sound from the grooves of a record. You'd think that with vinyl and turntables making a comeback that somewhere in a city the size of Plymouth would sell them, but even Richer Sounds, who stock turntables a-plenty, looked at me as if I was from Mars. Last resort: Maplin, that purveyor of electronic kits, extension cables and battery chargers. Yes!
