Surprise Find!



So, I was moving furniture around a couple of nights ago, after hanging the green drapes in the living room to live with them for a while.  I was working on rearranging the furniture and moved the Majestic console.  I hadn't looked inside it since I refinished the cabinet (I don't use the radio, just use it as a piece of furniture).  Anyway, I had completely forgotten about the stack of ten 78 records that were in the radio when I bought it.  Once I found them again, I remembered putting them back in the radio when I was finished with it.




Here's a sampling of the titles:

White Christmas - Bing Crosby
Silent Night - Bing Crosby
Silver Bells - Bing Crosby and Carol Richards (don't know that I've heard of her)
Jingle Bells - Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - Jimmy Boyd
Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer - Gene Autry and The Pinafores

What a nice surprise!  Now if I just had a working record player...

Mrs. Close (the previous owner of the radio) and I have one thing in common - we're both Bing fans!

  1. Wow, great find indeed. I think you should look in to getting that console fixed. You NEED a record player. How do the drapes look? Good idea to live with them for awhile.

  2. Or you could make candy bowls out of them like Mick did. Oh, but I think he asked us not to copy him . . . Yup, you've got to get the record player part fixed, what with all that Bing-ness.
