Don,

I, too, would like to add a big happy birthday to you. 70! You're just a pup. Thanks for all the songs you've posted and helped me find information about. Hope you have many, many more!

Gart, 65!!!

Many thanks to you all (y'all for those here in the South) for the kind words and wishes. Seventy years old seems really old until you reach it, and then you think it's not that old. I feel I've had a great life so far and I hope it just contiunes on.

Seems like a long time ago when I use to lay in bed at night to catch far away radio stations via a crystal and headphone to my ear. Times have changed. And for the better. Now I sit at a desk looking at a monitor and with a mouse in my hand, I click the world to me.

In the early 1940's radio seemed to be the preferred choice for home entertainment in my family and an old record player just set over in a corner, but it was a toy to me and my parents didn't seem to mind if I used it as one. Those thick records were wheels in my mind to roll around on the floor. Can't remember ever breaking one. Playing with those silver colored needles was fun also. Well enough of this nostalgia stuff.

For those that know of my postings, you know it's hard for me to comment on anything without some video or audio presentation on the subject. Well, I don't plan to change that with this post.

In 1938 the whole world was experiencing the end of the 'great depression'. But there was a darker cloud about to appear on the horizon. That cloud was the beginning of WWII in 1939. So what was happening in 1938 before the cloud? Particular in the entertainment world. I went to YouTube to find these snippets of history.


Lambeth Walk of 1938

Harry Brandelius - Han Hade Seglat För Om Masten (1938)

Adam Aston sings Henryk Wars - Panie Janie, 1938

Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and Shirley Temple (1938)

Mickey - The Brave Little Tailor (1938)

Bringing Up Baby - Original Trailer (1938)

Retromercial: Esso "Extra" gasoline (ca. 1938)

1938 Chevrolet Leader News
