I was lucky to be at work at Pig-A Dilly a couple of times in the early 70's when the Juke Box man came to change out the records! He would let you buy the ones he took off for 25 cents and give you the record sleeve and the Juke Box label! I worked there after school 3 days a week.
This is a picture of the Jukebox! in the late 1960's

I remember that night so well! We had a blast!!! I won the tickets from WHBQ!
You introduced Peter Noone! He said something funny to you, as you handed him the microphone, but we couldn't hear what he said. The whole show was Fabulous!!

I had so much fun taking these pictures that I sat down and looked at the catalog and time got away from me! I looked at the clock and 3 hours had went by! LOL!

George, there are some pictures of radio kits you will love!!
This Sears Wish book featured Dennis The Menace all thru the whole catalog!
I loved watching Ed Sullivan and Topo Gigio on Sunday Nights! So exciting back then to see the Bands you listen to on the radio, on TV!
It wasn't like now days, you can you-Tube them when ever you want to see them 24-7!
This is what we got when we went on a field trip to Hart's bakery in the middles 1960's. I cannot remember who Tom Suratt was, his signature is on the back.
Also, on that day Bill Killbrew was there and he drew caricatures of the kids!
I can still remember how good it smelled~

Dr. Flinn, I do like to listen to your radio station on 1210 AM or sometimes on 96.3 FM. I have collected a few pictures of "old Memphis" and am sending a few along to you today:
Two photos of the polar bears that were at the Fairview drive in. Same location that's now the Happy Hocker Pawn shop

On his death bed they asked him where he wanted to be buried and he said. "Surprise me."
In the early years of their marriage, my grandparents, Bill and Alyne Freeman, lived with Alyne’s parents at 899 Faxon Avenue.
I know everyone remembers these! They did change the formula over the years, The new ones don't color or smell the same as the Vintage ones!
This was taken in about 1980.
This the McDonalds on Thomas St. It was located at the front of the parking lot of Northgate Shopping center. It was only a walk up counter. You either ate in your car or took it home.
These are from my personal collection. Some of these were purchased at Sears- Crosstown back in the 1960's.
Rex and I both carried around radios as kids, ones like these, that used a 9 volt battery. We spent most of our allowance on batteries! We just could not imagine life without the radio! - Connie
Here is a picture of the Deluxe Reading Brochure for the toys that were sold in grocery stores in the 1950-1960's, like Big Star here in Memphis. Deluxe Reading later became Topper Toy Company. If you look closely at the picture you may see one of your toys! They sold the Desktop Car for Boys with the, steering wheel, lights and sounds, windshield and wipers that really worked! For the girls a poplar one was the Candy Fashion Doll. Many of these toys can be found on Ebay, but they are Pricey! - Connie
This is The Northgate Shopping center on Thomas Street In the 1950's. My friend was picking up her Grandmother from Work at 3 Sisters. She shared these with us on face book! I just loved seeing them! There was a Gridiron at the corner too! We thought you would get a kick out of seeing the old Pictures!!
We are on our way to early vote in Millington!
- Sincerely Connie and Rex
