Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

Re: Data storage on vinyl

I have a 12" single by Kissing The Pink called The Other Side Of Heaven.

Aha, that's the one. I knew there was such a record by one of the British New Wave bands as the record library I was volunteering with at the time had it in its collection, but my brain kept suggesting Fiction Factory even though I could not find a title that appeared to be the one.

The program showed an animated wireframe figure.

7" flexidiscs have been used for distributing programs (there's one in our computer museum's collection); for normal audio they don't sound that bad anyway, and are probably one step above no-name cassettes played on a cheap recorder with a misaligned dirty head.
