What's with the huge turntable?

During high school in the sixties, I spent a lot of time with my best friend listening to records in her father's music room. He was a retired navy officer. I loved listening to his system, but I was always curious about the turntable. It was very, very large. My friend only knew that her father had brought it from the military. When I watched (the Tokyo Rose Recording) segment, it answered that question from long ago. Thanks for the show. My husband just discovered it, and now he watches with me.

(Note: Viewers will recall the Tokyo Rose Recording was on an unusually large vinyl disc. History Detectives had to search to find a turntable large enough to play the recording.)
