Behind file number 9 is a 45 rpm from 1981. It’s a purple-labeled Capitol record by Bob Seger. The single is Tryin’ To Live My Life Without You/Brave Strangers.

Behind File Number 8 is a RCA Victor 45 rpm from 1953. It is another Perry Como single, this time with Keep It Gay/No Other Love.

Number two in the file is Rick Springfield’s songs Don’t Talk To Strangers and Tonight. This 45 is from 1982. First off is Don’t Talk To Strangers. It reminds me of an 80s tv theme song! I get the feeling that he doesn’t want her to talk to strangers. What do you think? 🙂 I … Continue reading Rick Springfield – Don’t Talk To Strangers/Tonight
How about we talk about my 45s collection? I have quite a few! I decided to take them out today and find out if they are on youtube so I can share. Some of them have sleeves, but most don’t.

They were shaped as flat disks, most commonly made of shellac, that could be tossed clear across the room with relatively no damage. They were magical things.
