Big changes are coming to the Dell jukebox next month.

Which of these records will still be hot in April 1966? Which ones will get voted off?



You have
one month
to speculate
but remember,
ladies & gentlemen,
this is only
an exhibition,
this is not
a competition;
so please --
no wagering!







Have a Shady day!

  1. Thank you far a great trip down memory lane. I think I was at "The Dell" maybe once. However, it was a neat place.

  2. It's great hearing from you! The 50s, 60s, and 70s are all in play on this blog, with new posts every 3 or 4 days. I hope you'll find some topics of interest. Thanks for your comment!
