As you supposed, it is something that cleans as you
play the record - not hard to figure out at all, so a
big fat chiz to Macmillan! My father has one on his
70s turntable - it's attached to the head of the
needle arm, and is a small roller which dusts up after
the needle.

IIRC it's 'discotheque' in the UK version (the Puffin
pb) - I remember thinking how funny and out-of-date it
sounded (I too was born in 77).
