Hit or Miss: H&R Wondergram
What we all want is portable playability.  Battery powered standard portable vinyl record players had been around for some time but were just low power versions of normal record players.  Harris and Russell (this advert is from October 1961) sold this better idea to shrink the player down to its absolute minimum. Hit or Miss, you tell me?
