It’s fair to say that we’ve all been in your situation: afflicted with a sudden fit of giggles, one that refuses to pass despite your valiant attempts to smother the bubbles of laughter rising up your throat. Hey, it could have been worse: you could have snorted, doubled over or squeaked.

In an age of digital this, digital that, digital the other thing, you’d think an old, supposedly obsolete format such as vinyl would be a thing of the past.
