Thanks to my parents’ record collection – yes!

Our parents knew what was special even if we didn’t get it at the time.
December 19th, 2016 at 15:22
I think I had everyone of those LPs

My Dad built a hi-fi system from the tiny transitors (for the turn table) to the wooden cabinets (for turn table and speaker)…it was a thing of beauty. We had it long before we had a television. And on it we played his beloved 33 1/3 rpm vinyls and a lot of the musical artists you have on display. My Mom’s favorite were the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Lawrence Welk. Dad loved anything that was even remotely Christmas…I can now sing almost any Christmas songs with the youngest grandkids (except for the very newest). It’s a memory I hope I never forget 🙂

Lawrence Welk was a must too. A one, ana two, ana three…

I liked Dino too.

Papa loves Mambo, Catch a falling stars and put in your pocket never let it fade away, When the stars in your eyes, thats amore. I grew up listening to Perry Como because of my older siblings. Still my fav.

I loved “Catch a Falling Star….” but I knew if I did and burned a hole in my pants pocket my mother would beat the crap out of me with the giant wooden salad spoon.

Young enough and old enough!

Well, I remember Perry Como well, he lived not far from me in Jupiter Florida on the inter-coastal waterway.
December 18th, 2016 at 18:18
And to think I was in Miami just a few miles away.

My parents lived in Pt St Lucie for a decade. I would go to Ft Pierce Beach and Jensen Beach when I visited.
December 19th, 2016 at 07:35
I was born in Miami. Not that many native Miamians. My son also born here. I love Jensen Beach, it’s beautiful!

Wait, what? Where’s the Nat King Cole album? Yes, I remember all of these. In fact, I have most of them on CDs, transferred into iTunes on my computer.
Oh- and thanks for reminding me of just how old I am! 😀
December 19th, 2016 at 07:15
Oh, yes, his voice golden velvet.
December 18th, 2016 at 12:34
Yes, real Christmas music. My dad had a great collection of Christmas music. I don’t enjoy the modern songs as much as the originals. Happy listening and Merry Christmas.
December 18th, 2016 at 13:27
Thanks D. For my generation the songs transported us back the appreciations of our parents’ generation.
December 18th, 2016 at 12:31
My folks played a few of these when I was a kid. 😊
December 18th, 2016 at 13:28
Clean and wholesome and they did bring magic into our hearts every December.
December 18th, 2016 at 11:20
Yes… those were the days 🙂
December 18th, 2016 at 13:30
Each generation has its attachments but I am glad I am as old as I am now to belong to the generation or two of these songs.
December 18th, 2016 at 10:13
Love them all!!!
December 18th, 2016 at 13:35
Our generation has so much in common. I don’t think much of the last two generations have common denominators that are even close.
December 18th, 2016 at 16:21
Oh no Lol, they have their electronics in common!
December 18th, 2016 at 10:11
Ah yes, I remember them well. Haven’t heard Perry in a long time. YouTube here I come. lol
December 18th, 2016 at 13:37
For sure. I loved his “Catch a falling star…” and “Three coins in a fountain…”
December 18th, 2016 at 10:09
Perry Como was like the Mister Rogers for adults, though I cherished him as a child, too. What a gentle peacefulness he shared. I was going to say “It isn’t Christmas without a Lennon Sisters album,” but there it is — the very same one I have! And I miss Andy Williams.. and all those other greats of whom you’ve reminded us. They made us feel that all was calm, all was bright. 🙂
December 18th, 2016 at 13:38
You characterize it all so comfortably.
December 18th, 2016 at 10:08
We have a few of them!
Oh, so you know.

December 18th, 2016 at 09:59
…and Rice Krispies with bananas ?
December 18th, 2016 at 09:06
I am sure there were some of these in our house. I always loved Andy Williams.
December 18th, 2016 at 09:13
Mother loved Roger Williams piano.
December 19th, 2016 at 07:28
My mom did too!
