Stick Flexi Records In Your Ears

Do not be alarmed by the ad!  Hip Pocket records measure just 3 7/8 inches in diameter and are made of thin, flexible vinyl–the same material as those thin flexible Eva-Tone Sound Sheets once found in magazines, etc.

In 1967, Philco-Ford introduced their Hip Pocket Record system, which included a portable player.

They are similar to the Pocket Discs by Americom Coperation — only the Americom (ABC Records) Pocket Discs, while the same size, played at 33 1/3 rpm. And Pocket Discs didn’t have their own portable player.

The fab fad only lasted a few years.
