Older devices still being used in today's digital age.

Does the clack clack sound of typewriter keys make you nostalgic? How about the crackle of vinyl spinning on a record player? You may consider typewriters and record players relics of the past but there are plenty of people keeping them alive and well. In this episode of Cityscape we talk with people still using machines from decades past.

We'll visit a typewriter company that's been around for over 80 years, talk with a collector of pre-world war two machinery, and learn about vintage video game consoles like Atari. We'll also hear from a young couple who prefers vintage technology to modern devices, a segment contributed by radio producer Zach Hirsch.
