Day 22 – The Letter V

Good old vinyl, certainly a big part of my past.  It sounds so old fashioned now, when you can just download a tune any time you want, to realise that in the ‘old days’ you had to save your money and go to a shop and buy one of these ‘singles’.  You’d take it home, and get out your ‘record player’ and move the arm across and gently touch the needle onto the edge of the record.

I remember the first singles I bought, ‘Puppet On A String’ by Sandie Shaw, and ‘Release Me’ by Engelbert Humperdink.  It was April 1967, I was eight years old.

    I had a little plastic record player to play my 45’s on. I loved it. The records I listened to were from the late seventies.

  2. Ha, you reminded me of my first record I bought. It was “Running Bear” by Johnny Preston (I think that’s his name), 1959! Funny the things you can remember!

  3. My first 45s were “Jesus Loves Me” and flip side was “Jesus Loves the Little Children.” And one with “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.” The first doll I remember naming I named Bonnie because I thought Bonnie was a girl in the song.
