Springsteen use turntable here to play Born to Run acetate? [Quite possibly.]

There is the famous story of Bruce Springsteen listening to the Born to Run demo acetate on a turntable before throwing it into the swimming pool in disgust at the Campus Inn in Kutztown on July 25, 1975. See the entry on Cyber Plaque for Campus Inn. There has been a belief that he asked to use a turntable at a local record store in Kutztown. Kutztown is small and would not have supported more than one such store, and according to various articles and ads at newspapers.com, tickets for the Keystone Hall shows, including those of Springsteen, could be purchased at Trexler's Records. Someone had told me that he thought Trexler's was located where Mamma's Delight Pizza is (a few doors down from here, with an entry on Cyber Plaque), but I see in some corporate notices on the Web that it was at 220 West Main Street, for ex., https://pennsylvaniadb.com/company/2517181/trexler-s-records. I think it is a good bet that it was in this building that Mr. Springsteen previewed the rejected edition of the Born to Run album.
