Talkin’ ’bout a resolution

A couple more variations on the resolution theme have been in Bara Menyn over this last week or so.



Shape Up and Dance with Felicity Kendall


Slimming with Thelma Brown

They will be a new selection in on Friday Jan 25th for Dydd Santes Dwynwen


Hopes, Holiday plans & Postcards

Another selection for the season – get fit and book your holiday!

Fitech - Personal Fitness Calculator

Ladbroke Holidays - We're all going on a Ladbroke Holiday Flexidisc

Thumbs Up, Book Early - Pontins flexidisc

Ive collected a few of these old postcard flexidisc records over the years, mostly the audio on them bears no relation to the image or the places shown as far as I can tell.  An exception is this one from York.

Radiotracks Ltd Audio Postcard - The Sights and Sounds of York

Vistasound Postcard Record - Witch Doctor

Many more flexidisc postcard records in this youtube playlist here

Panto season!

As it’s panto season I thought I’d share these Selcol flexidisc versions here.  Discogs describes Selcol as a ‘UK plastics manufacturer active during the 1950s and 1960s.’
The discs are made from what seems like a very soft, light plastic film (compared to other flexidiscs) backed with printed card.
You can see they have ‘Cut here’ printed on the sides to indicate they were originally cut from something larger, but I dont know what..  I was quite surprised how playable they are though!

Last Christmas Vinyl

Heres the the final selection of vinyl in Bara Menyn Bakehouse until Saturday when they close for a well deserved Christmas holiday.


I have so many more Christmas records that didn’t make the show, many are photographed and up here in my Flickr set including this fab Partridge Family Christmas album.

The Partridge Family Christmas Album

I couldn’t resist trying it up in a pear tree on a portable player some years ago..what could be more Christmassy!

For something a bit more experimental you could try this…

nothing like a nice Christmas jingle!
