    Your 4 song 45 could be what they call an "EP", extended play.

    My brother bought a friends record collection in the early 60's, and had 4 of them still in the celophane by Elvis.

    It's a 45 extended play,,LOL,not that old,inherited them from a sister when I was 12 in an old suitcase.Plus,I've been known to pick a few up at auctions if I see a record of a group I like.Just like Trap though,I'm a hoarder and usually don't get rid of anything.

    You would not believe some of the nasty stuff that has been recorded until you get an old box of records at an auction from the more southern states.Seems northern auctions go through the boxes and eliminate offensive records.Down south,you get what is in the boxes.Just my experience,not bashing the south,I love it down there.

    Back in the middle 50's I used to listen to country music broadcast from Del Rio TX. Can anyone come up with the call letters of that station. This was AM frequency, the transmitter was across the river in Mexico, and it tranmision power was so great that we could listen to it up in Minnesota during the day light hours. Many of the great singers and groups got their start from this outlet.

    Roy,
    I believe that the programs which I listened to in the early to mid 50's predates Wolfman Jack. I will Google "old radio programs" and see what happens.

    Mr. ramorton, you were almost correct, it was XERB, Del Rio. Also listened to the only station East of the Mississippi with a "K" as the 1st letter in the call sign. (KDKA) Pittsburg. Others were WLS, WJJD in Chicago, WCKY in Cincinnati. I'm damned near 83, and I listened to those stations on a table top, cathedral style Zenith. Had a long wire antenna from the top of our house to a tree on the back of our lot. I think Dad spent about $2.00 for the antenna with lightning arresters and standoffs and insulators. You could see the whole family sitting in front of the radio "watching" Amos & Andy. Those were the days. Herb
