Put the needle on the record!
It’s here. It’s here! My lovely Emerson Big-Little Portable Phono obtained from Mom and Dad’s is in the house along with a few 45’s.
The first thing I did was play Name that Tune with the hubby. Song number 1 was All Night Long by Lionel Richie. He couldn’t identify it easily and when he figured out what it was, you know what he said? “That sounds like crap.” My response? “It’s not a CD. It’s a 45 on a kid’s record player that’s probably 25 years old!” Silly husband.
I spun a few more tunes, including the obscure Anne Murray’s You Needed Me and the delightful I Think We’re Alone Now by the queen of mall tours, Tiffany.
Next up on the playlist is my recently purchased John Mayer Continuum LP. A vinyl 33 and the main reason for getting my hands back on my little phono. I can’t wait!
I’m taking requests. What would you like to hear?
