My very cool find from today's shopping trip: a 45 RPM recording for Carol from Sidney (reverse label is exactly the same, except for the names inscribed on the dotted lines). I'm not sure when these were produced, but it must have been very exciting to receive one and get to hear a loved one's actual voice.
Should I try to play it? Very tempting--although it's not in great shape. Look for it soon on my home or campus office wall.
