ARCANE RADIO TRIVIA: Electric Banana

Arcane Radio Trivia found a really cool banana-inspired portable record player, allegedly from the Andy Warhol era.

Banana

Plays in any position…even upside down! I’d love to see one of these in person. I wonder how many were ever manufactured in the first place.

I recently found this… Supposedly it was inspired by the work of an Andy Warhol. It’s based on his painting of a banana that served as album art for the Velvet Underground. The Warhol Foundation has reported that it was not officially licensed.  They are rare as you might imagine, but they do have one at the International Banana Museum in Mecca, CA.  The image above comes from an old issue of  the Speigel catalog. Regardless.. one of the strangest record players I’ve ever seen.
