loved this show. listening to sonny terry. all the songs were great.do you have any 78's from spike jones and his city slickers? they were so very popular in the 40's here in the usa. my grand parents used to have their 78's till there was a fire in the house they were renting and lost them all do to the fire. also have any hoosier hot shots? thanks for playing these great 78's
