Hi guys! I"ve been lurking around the forum for months but have inherited something I just had to post. This is my great-grandfather's Warwick mfg. Record Player. From what I can gather, they are pretty rare, considering they were made for the Library of Congress to give out to legally blind citizens, like my grandfather. They were made in the 1930's as part of Roosevelt's social programs. Each week the LOC would send my grandfather a record ( with the label in Braille) that had that week's news, points of interest, music, etc. basically anything that would normally be found in your average newspaper. He received these records well into the 60's. I would LOVE to be able to listen to the records, but unfortunately, the player does not work. I can hear the speaker come on, but the turntable does not turn, nor do I have a needle for it. It is Warwick MFG model AD (5) 06058. the label inside says it requires an ASTATIC 85D or 83-7D. but I can not find any information on those types of needles. So, a few questions for all of you. Does anyone know how I can obtain the needles required, or how to fix the turntable? I think it might just need cleaning or some minor repair I could probably fix, but I'm afraid to mess with it for fear of ruining it. I live in North Mississippi, and there aren't any record repair places around here. Also, if I get my player fixed, would anyone (besides myself) be interested in the contents of the records? Thanks!
