The ramblings of a Creative Crone! I consider myself to be the Grandma Moses of the Fiber Arts World as I came to the art late in life. My blog will consist of my art; art of others; an occasional book review because when not creating, I am reading; perhaps an enlightening discussion on a favorite quote...and positive discussions of politics/world affairs only!
Last week, I showed our brand new radio/phonograph! A real treat for the whole family. The phonograph would play "78" RPM records....big, heavy vinyl records.
A pile of 78 records
78 RPM record labels
The records were two-sided...usually a popular tune on one side and a not as well known by the same artist on the reverse. Sometimes, through exposure the lesser known song would become popular.
The first record that I remember my dad purchasing and playing on our new phonograph was "Ghost Riders in the Sky" by Vaughn Monroe! Whenever I hear that song or a rendition (Johnny Cash recorded it later), I remember that beautiful phonograph we had!!
