And Don's Discs...for the short time that Keele ran a used-record
store? I bought hundreds of 78's from Don...he had his unique pricing
policy, whereby the records got cheaper as time went by...! In fact, I
bought an Ipana Troubadors disc whigh had Bing Crosby vocals
(which I discovered when I got the disc home and played it!).
