My first album was Bobby Sherman! He was such a hunk! The Monkees first album was right in there too. They got a lot of play time in my room on my little portable record player.

I think it cost $3.50 or so at the BX, and at the time I made 50 cents/hour babysitting AND had a savings account.
The first 8-track I've listen to before they went by-by was Bruce spring steen, The first first Music CD was AC/DC Heat Seaker.

Christmas, 1969. I was 10.

My parents bought a record player with flip-down turntable and detachable side speakers. As I recall it was orange in color and the speaker boxes had lights over the top half of them that pulsed and changed with the sound. Too groovy.

Anywayz, they also bought 2 albums for us children to play. One was Jingle Jangle by The Archies. Cool. Fun. Danceable. The other was a Cheech & Chong comedy record. They had clearly not listened to Cheech & Chong before. LOL. The look on their faces when we played it was priceless.

The first 8-Track tapes that I remember purchasing with my own money to play in my own car were: "Endless Summer"-Beach Boys, "Paranoid"-Black Sabbath, "Story"-Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons.

If it's a first song, I remember my first song was AC/DC'S Black & back and I've heard it on a radio in a pop up camper for the first time. I think was about 8-10 when I heard it.


the whole family was in 4h showing and selling chickens back then, Also this is the time when Mario brothers came out on the nes, Yes that was a long time ago but it's one of those memories that stuck in my head as a favorite memory of all time.

Loved all of Elvis songs and still do. Played his records on the Juke Box in the drug store where we had an old fashioned soda fountian. Shows my age, I was a teenager then in the wonderful 50's
