2) This song was originally released as a 78 rpm record. Have you ever seen a 78? Oh yes, 78's were my first children's records. I graduated to 45's in my teens, and 33 1/3's for my record albums. Kids today would want to know....What's a record?
4) One of 1932's best selling books was Agatha Christie's Peril at End House. She remains popular today. Are you familiar with her work? I am from Masterpiece Theater and movies. I think they were good mysteries but somewhat old-fashion todays.
