    And then the Beatles released Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out on the same 45. No B side. Lot of music for $0.70 :)

    My first 45 rpm purchased was Runaway by Del Shannon... 1961 Still have it:)

    Melody Hill. Not a hit

    Google says Jody was the B side. I don't remember the song:) Without looking I thought it was Hats Off To Larry, a fair tune of it's time... . But... I guess I bought that 45 as well. The first 45 my sister bought was Be Bop Baby by Ricky Nelson. Google says it was released in 1957. That would be the year we got our first record player.

    Did you happen to catch the excellent, but short, series 1969 that aired a few months ago? Every episode was insightful and informative.

    One in particular, The FBI and the Panther, I think you'd enjoy. It was about the Black Panthers, focusing on one, Fred Hampton. Really, I think anyone who wonders about the BP should see this. Having been a child at the time, I had very limited knowledge of certain things that were going on. This filled in a lot of the blanks.

    I lived it. Saw it in the news, read it in the papers.

    Payphones make me feel old but a Phonebooth would make me feel ancient.

    I can remember making local calls from a pay phone for a nickel. I can also remember trying to see how many kids we could cram in a phone booth. :) Neither make me feel old. I AM old. :)

    It was a dime for me, but I hear you--I'm old, too! :D

    You know what I'd love to have? One of those iconic red British phone booths. They're fetching big bucks now as decorative pieces. I have no idea where I'd put it, but it would be fun to have one.

    They are way cool. They look great in the yard.

    When I was a teen, me and my buds were cruising the main drag trying to meet up with a car load of chicks. Another car load of boys had the same idea and squeezed in between the target vehicle and us and forced us up onto the sidewalk. we didn't hit anyone but we reduced one of the standard Bell phone boots to a gazillion shards.
    Needless to say... it was time to go home. :)
