red light fever
 n.— «Around 1970 aged 10 my Dad and I went into a booth in Victoria Station where you could record a “45” seven inch record. (like in the video for “Tribute” by those joke heavy metal idiots…???) We told jokes and giggled, I think I still have it. There must have been a cutting lathe in the booth somewhere…We definetly had red light fever!» —“Your first recording ever” by Jules Gearslutz.xom July 24, 2003. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
