1 in 4 kids hasn't heard of records; TECHNOLOGY.
AS many as one in four youngsters have never heard of record players, a study claims.
But then 15 per cent of all age groups cannot remember the Walkman and 92 per cent cannot remember a telephone with a dial on it.
In contrast, today's younger generation cannot live without the internet or a washing machine.
Other essentials highlighted in the poll by retailer Comet to mark its 75th anniversary include the TV, the home PC, the mobile phone and the dishwasher.
Joining the record player as a distant memory are the video, cassette tape, teas made, black and white TV and eight-track.
Amazingly, the survey of 1,000 adults even showed 22 per cent of people could not remember the minidisc.
A Comet spokesman said: "For every iPod and flat screen TV which is now essential to so many, there is a sodastream or betamax that has become as quickly forgotten."
