I feel the need to ask...

When exactly did this term start being used for the base of a turntable or changer?

I know it is an old latin or greek term for the base of a column or pillar, but when did it get used for phonographs?

Looking in old magazines and catalogs, I never see it used.

Is it a British term?
Did it come about in the resurgence of vinyl as a cute term for the base of a turntable?
