Postcard Records & Rivers

Couple of postcard flexidisc records with a bit of river theme.  They might be used in a mix for the Afon festival http://www.may-nard.org/afon

Aberglasyn Pass N. Wales. The bridge over the river Glaslyn has a nice story connected to the Devil, as do various other bridges..

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!
