The face to hair ratio of the guy on the upper-right is well below acceptable limits.

I think it was a K-Tel record when I was a kid, with the famous song "Beep, Beep" by The Playmates

[Very slowly]
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep
While riding in my Cadillac
What to my surprise
A little Nash Rambler was following me
About one third my size
The guy musta wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Slowly]
I pushed my foot down to the floor
To give the guy the shake
But the little Nash Rambler stayed right behind
He still had on his brake
He musta thought his car had more guts
As he kept on tooting his horn (beep beep)
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Normal speed]
My car went into passing gear
And we took off with gust (whoosh)
Soon we were going ninety
Musta left him in the dust
When I peeked in the mirror of my car
I couldn't believe my eyes
The little Nash Rambler was right behind
You'd think that guy could fly
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Quickly]
Now we were doing a hundred and ten
This certainly was a race
For a Rambler to pass a Caddy
Would be a big disgrace
The guy musta wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn (beep beep)
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Very quickly]
Now we're going a hundred twenty
As fast as I can go
The Rambler pulled along side of me
As if we were going slow
The fella rolled down his window
And yelled for me to hear
"Hey buddy how do I get this car outa second gear?"

Hey Ajax,

Yikes, another "Tubby the Tuba" listener! Hilarious!

Absolutley. I had the Everly's "All I Have to Do is Dream" and Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk." I didn't know who Roy Orbison was until years later when I met my then-wife, who was wild about Roy Orbison. I think we had a "Best of Roy" on 8-track with "Crying" on it, because I clearly recall listening to him in the car. I recall "Perfidia" by the Ventures but I didn't own it. All my old 45s got roasted by the sun during an apartment move when I left the box in the back of a VW bug. They were all warped and unplayable. I think I salvaged one.

It's sort of weird to realize that I've been alive and purchased every music format--except wax cylinders!! Even "Extended Play" 45-rpm 2-disc albums (they weren't very popular) of which I owned a couple, and pre-recorded open-reel tapes. And, lest readers think I'm 100, the 78s I bought in the 1950s were all electrical recordings. The era of acoustical 78-rpm recordings (done with a huge horn that moved a diaphragm that moved the stylus) ended in the late 1920s.

I'd never thought about it, but I'm pretty much in the same boat - 78s, 45s, LPs (mono, stereo, and a few Quadraphonics) - still have 3000 of them, pre-recorded reel-to-reel tapes, pre-recorded cassettes, CDs, SACDs, DVD-As, DVDs, HD-DVDs, Blu-ray. I don't think I ever owned an 8-track or any media. It's life was so short lived that I must have missed it. However, when I was in radio, we used cartridges (stereo only, I believe) for commercials, etc. Does that count? Missed Laser Discs too.

I've got some 78s from the 30s and 40s, but it wasn't me who bought 'em. They were my parents.

Some dude is selling what he claims is the world's largest collection of music on eBay--heard about it last night on NPR. He wants someone to buy it and donate it to a museum.

Ha, ha, ha! LOL.

Speaking of Dame Nellie Melba, she was very big on toast (Melba toast). . .and maybe peaches. Peaches Melba? Isn't that a dessert?
