    SO cool. I still have a box of 45's. My prize is "Last Date" by Floyd Cramer. Doesn't it make you feel so connected to history. Looking back now I wish I had not played it so much! It is well loved. Thanks for this great memory. Wow, an Elvis record!!

    I have about 25 of those 45 records that I want to get rid of. I don't want to give them to Goodwill, I don't do garage sales. The antique stores aren't buying as the market is down. I think I might just as well throw them away and save my children the job of doing it when I'm gone. They were my mother's. I have had so much trouble getting rid of her things that I'm trying to not leave my children such an onerous chore. I just had my 70th birthday and realize I won't be keeping house forever.

    put an ad on Craigslist. You would be surprised at how many people will want them. I have gotten rid of 33 albums that way, there is always a lot of interest and no questions asked. And mine were no prizes either. Most people will be willing to take them all.

    I confess to worse than that. I have old 78's.mostly mine,but some that were given to me that are old albums.Would you believe Bing Crosby's White Christmas,or InkSpot albums? I hate getting rid of them, but they were used so much I dont think they would be considered collectables,but probably would be in good shape. I've got so many from the early 50's, and some from the 40's,like the Andrew Sisters,Glenn Miller,Benny Goodman.,etc.I know my kids will toss them, but I just can't make myself do that.

    You might want to find out if they are worth any money. Some of the records are worth a nice chunk o' change.

    Sometimes it is the condition of the cover that gives them
    value.

    I have some 45s & 78s that were my mother's. I picked a one of the 45s the other day and it was "Leader of the Pack" from the 60s. Cute song

    My brother collected 45 records. When he passed he had over 3000 collected! He would put them on tapes and give the tapes away. Many of them had the 'scratch, scratch' sound because of the wear and in the 50's they weren't done in stereo.... There are people out there that collect these and pay top dollar. I know he told me of one person that gave him $25.00 for one that was one of the first sold.

    So all of you that have these things start looking for a buyer 'cause they are out there. It is a part of history and so much fun.

    I have a lot of 45's and I have approximately 1,000 LP's. I still love to play them occasionally. Lots of Elvis and other artists from the 50's. I have recorded some to CD's but I just don't have a lot of time to do this anymore. I love my albums though and won't ever get rid of them. My kids grew up on this music and love it almost as much as I do, so I don't think they'll toss them.

    oh don't just toss em. an ad in the paper or a note on the bulletin board (office, grocery store?) might find someone with an old juke box. we have one and the grandkids love to "dance". they are all under 5 and it it so cute! someone will love the records.

    I don't know if they make the fuses that would fit your jukebox anymore, but I'd bet you could find it on-line. I'd fix it and play those records.
