The days before ipods, walkmans, cassette decks and tape decks, there was a small vinyl disc, called a 45 record. It looked like this.
When I was a kid, I had a small record player that played 45s only. It was my charm of a gift that my Uncle Lenny gave to me. And it was red! How I loved that record player, and the 45s that I borrowed from my older brother and sister. Actually, in truth, many of them I borrowed when they weren't around. I was born in 1958, the music was ahead of my time. However, I listened to and loved the music that my siblings loved. They were my idols. Even now when I hear the beat of a Motown song, I think of my red record player (it went to heaven) and all the good times I had listening to that great music.
