Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie….by Hoagie Carmichael

No, I am not so old that I remember “Stardust” from my youth. Seriously, this was an oldie when I was born!

But I do remember humming the melody when my children were babies.

I remember listening to 78rpm records that I bought for a dime at garage sales….and Stardust was one of them. Yes, I said a dime. Nobody wanted those old records back then. Everyone wanted new 8-track technology!

There is a sound that old records have. A sound that is missing from modern cd’s. Something about that sound, even with the pops and crackles of surface scratches, that is very appealing to me.
