Dad's influence

Cactus, thanks for the added story along with your record postings.

When I was growing up my day would often relax in the evening after a hard day at the office with what he called a "record session". He loved jazz and big band music from the '30s and '40s which didn't appeal to me at the time, I was excited by the emergence of rock and roll.

But I guess his routine was implanted on me since I began the habit of record sessions myself which continues to this day. As I got older I also gained appreciation for some of his favorite music, particularly Louie Armstrong and his All Stars, and Jack Teagarden.

Thanks for sharing and be grateful you can still share the music with your father-in-law.

PS - regarding that "Cheyenne" record, I don't recall ever seeing a large hole 7" in 78. All my 45s are 45 RPM. ;^)
