Turkmenbashi Bans Phonograms

Turkmen President Suparmarat Niyazov is always a treasure trove of great stories. This latest one involves the negative influence of phonograms:
Turkmen president Saparmurat Niyazov has signed a decree banning the use of "phonograms at all cultural events, song-musical performances organized in honor of state holidays, in the programs of TV channels of the General directorate of the Turkmen television, as well as at all cultural events organized in the state and public organizations, in places of mass gatherings of people, during wedding parties and festivities."
Wait a sec...phonograms? Isn't it phonographs?
