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!
