Name That Tune




Here are a couple of flashbacks from the past. Does anyone remember what these are?
If you were born in the sixties, you probably don't have a clue.

So, put your thinking caps on and take a walk down memory lane!

Definitely recognize the adapter to play a 45 rpm disc on the 33 1/3 needle. I'm going to have to forward the post to my "December" hubby. I'm sure he'll know in an instant. Anything I'd say would be a guess. I imagine the reason I don't know is that we lived in the city and didn't have a garage. Looks like something you would find in the garage. We'll see.

I would say it's your basic skate key. Yes, I'm the December hubby.

Okay, my age is definitely showing but they certainly look like the adapter that allowed you to play 45 rpm records on your phonograph. And the other sure looks like a roller skate key.

Skate key..the kind you attached to your saddle shoes...45 adapter for blue suede shoes.....

Ah yes, couldn't have enjoyed those singles without the ol' 45 hole plug. But, hey, I use to play 78's on my portable record player too.

And I remember how desperate I got when I had misplace my skate key! Having to borrow someone else's just wasn't cool where I lived. Worse yet was wearing it out. At least I could go buy another one at the Salvation Army Store or Goodwill.

I knew them both. That skate key I had and I have the scars to prove it. I got a new pair of skates on my birthday in 1956 and was skating down my sidewalk with a bottle of bubbles in my hand blowing bubbles and fell. Bubble were in a glass bottle in 1956. ouch!
