Today Zachary asked me if I had 'old' music he could listen to. I disregarded the 'old' part and dug out my 45's from my teenage years. Every weekend my sisters and I would walk to a local store called 'Downtown Records and Tapes'. I looked forward to buying a new 45 each weekend. I kept my 45's in this metal box.
Before you snicker… the Trojans were the mascot at my high school.
After dusting off the covers, Zach and I tried playing a few records. I had to show Zachary the settings of the record player. He laughed when I sped up the 45's on the higher speed. Most of them skipped and scratched. Zach's face was priceless when he heard the
hideous sound music coming from the record player. It was cute watching him try to lift the needle up and put it back on the arm rest. My gosh, the record player must look like an antique to him!
Check out the 80's hair-do.
Egads, I wanted to dress like her too!
The Boss! Who didn't love Bruce Springsteen.
I liked MJ before all his crazy life-style nonsense occured.
I bought this one because I loved the Top Gun movie.
Tom Cruise was delicious!
This song by Survivor was a popular in Philly because the Rocky movies were made right here, in the city of brotherly love.
Anyone know this guy?
He played Frisco on General Hospital.
He was a heart throb to my teenage heart!
Horrible singer, though.
What was I thinking when I bought this?
Music sure has evolved since I was a teenager. Some of it good, some of it not so good. But I'm sure my parent said that about my music too!
