Remember 45s? In order to listen to them, we'd have to attach a little yellow thingy in the middle of the record player. What were those yellow thingies called? Come to think of it...remember record players? They used needles, rather than lasers.
I remember listening to 45s like these on a child's record player. We had to be careful not to break the needle or warp the records. Sometimes the needle would collect dust, causing the record to skip.
I found this Mickey Mouse record in its original, unopened package. Its got a picture of all the original Mousketeers on the back.
Who could forget Popeye?! He's strong to the finich cuz he ate his spinach, he's Popeye the sailor man! Who else was there? Olive Oil, Sweet Pea, Brutus, and Whimpy who always ate hamburgers!
CDs sound so much clearer than records; but for those who remember actually putting a piece of vinyl onto a turntable to hear the music, isn't there just something special about it? Remember the sound of the needle against the record? The background noise always sounded something like this...chhhh....chhhhh....chhhhhhh.
My sister owned so many Beatles records that sell for hundreds today. Oh, if we only knew then what we know now!
