I CAN FEEL THE HIPSTER SINGULARITY APPROACHING. IT'S ON ITS WAY.

I don't know about the "78 resurgence movement" being alive and well either, but I can think of a couple other examples. R. Crumb's Cheap Suit Serenaders released one (in the 70s I think) out of nostalgic value and then quickly realized that almost no one could play it. Tom Waits released one with Preservation Hall Jazz Band to benefit the hall, which was severely damaged during Katrina. The deluxe version included a player so that people could hear the music. I had a great Dual turntable with a 78 setting, and a crate of 78s that I found here and there; it's hardly unheard-of. But I'm sure many looking for something to scoff at will consider it some kind of "1890s" affectation rather than an honest interest in old-fashioned things.

(Not sure if this is worth amending, but I just double-checked and the Waits/Preservation Hall 78 was to benefit a music outreach program rather than repairs to the hall itself.)

My grandmother left me an RCA console stereo when she dies, just checked and it does play 78 rpm records, so if anyone wants they can come listen to their new record on my player.

If you are thinking to yourself, "Does my record player goes that high?," the answer is actually, "I guess the surgery isn't permanent, and maybe somebody should go check on Algernon."
