Television Tommy

I just bought a ton more of these at a junk shop recently. 24 of them for about $7.00. So far i’ve transferred about half.

I dig this one quite a bit. That Television Tommy is one rotten kid all right.

Great illustrated label and a very early song about television!

Wow! Thanks for posting this.
"Television Tommy" was my favorite song in 1953-54 when I was 4 or 5 years old. We had the record and I played it until it got as scratchy as yours.

This weekend, I bought a little record sleeve book 'rhythm tote' album storage thing, and it was full of little records, some little gold records, some mainstream stuff (singles). This record, Television Tommy, was in there, and it piqued my interest more than most for some reason. I don't have a record player anymore (need to replace it) so I wanted to hear the song. I googled it and you came up and YAY! I get to hear it. Thanks :) How fun!

i love this!!!! i also would have been about 5 years old in 1954 and clearly remember hearing this a lot - on the radio? my older brother was called 'tommy' and somehow the song also became a bit of an excuse for family humour.
love the 'scratch'!
