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.

Here's one for my friend in Nashville, who i don't talk to anywhere near often enough. A cheezy kiddie rcord to help him bring in the third decade of his life ought to make up for it i figure...
Happy dirty thirty Brett! It's just not as fun watching post-season baseball without you pal.

The best part about these old 6" 78's is that they are all under two minutes long. I guess six year olds in the 1950's didn't have any attention span either. They sure had better music though...
Here's comes the Choo Choo Train! All 1 minute 44 seconds of it.

Click images to make them really BIG
Welcome to the companion to my other blog, Junk Shop Juke Box. I post mostly unusual rock and roll type stuff over there, obscure b-sides etc, but i like to switch it up and play a little bit of everything... This blog is where i plan on sharing some selections from my ever growing vintage children's record collection.
Some of these will be things that i owned when i was a kid, but the majority of what will end up here are old 78s that i have rescued from thrift stores and junk shops.
I transferred the 78s by playing them at 45 rpm and speeding up the digital files using Audacity. I cleaned them up the best i could, but don't expect super high fidelity here, it's a miracle that some of them survived all these years at all.
Just picked this one up a few weeks ago. Ran me a whole 25 cents.
Hope you enjoy.
