[78-L] Age of record collectors

Well I'm 68 and have been collecting since shortly after exiting the womb, that 
would make me the oldest member on the list, so far anyway.  And so far, I seem 
to be the only one who actually started collecting 78s when they were still au 
courant - the only medium to be had, and therefore weren't actually known as 
78s, they were just records.

But I'm not going to stand in front of all you youngsters and admit that!  Oh 
wait a minute, I just did!!  I hate senior's moments.


P.S.  Actually, Mr. Barr is probably older than I, since he was born the same 
year I was but I wasn't born until November.  So I guess he's the only one on 
the list whom I actually have to respect.
