My dad was a radio DJ in the late 40s and into the 50s.  We used to have a
house full of 78s.  This was Virginia in the days of segregation, so no
black performers or groups could be played.  I remember my dad grousing
because he wasn't allowed to play "race music" as it was called.

I ought to check my mom's basement some time and see how many of the records
are still there.
