Who remembers this ad?
My Dad was a member all those years ago. I remember him saying, "Pick an album you like". A phrase that will never be uttered in any modern day household today. I remember my small finger following down the musicians and album titles to choose from, in my tenth year of life. Yes, I came across Eddie Rabbit's, I Love A Rainy Night (with the album titled with the same name). Perhaps this is where my Country Rock / Country Pop attraction began. I remember the excitement when a thin square box held the mailbox cover open. My Dad handed it to me saying, "This is yours". I remember going into the living room and setting up my Dad's compact record player. I flipped open the paddle locks, found an outlet for power, took off the cellophane and placed the vinyl down. Turned the power on and placed the needle to hear my music choice. When he began to sing I knew I had made a good choice. I am unsure why this moment stands out to me, but I do believe it was only the beginning of a life that would always include the love of good music!
