Turk & Jenne - July 10, 1946 Recorded By Gaston Ragno
Another lost item found digging. These things always kinda bum me out when i find them because they were obviously meant for family & not some knucklehead digging for records. They just get discarded and lost forever and i'm sure no one in the family gives a shit. So when i turn them up and they are cheap i buy them. I like listening to them. It's sorta like a time machine or like being an audio peeping Tom. You go back to 1946 and hear a little message from another time and place that was never meant for you to hear. This one from Turk & Jenne. Looks like they were sending it to their Ma. Maybe one of these days someone will google turk & jenne or Gaston Ragno and find it. Probably not... They really didn't have a whole lot to say other than Jenne is gonna be 11 and Turk likes the phrase Hey-Bop-A-Re-Bop, as he says it on both sides of the record. Basically just horsing around. They start speaking a different language. Not sure, but i think it might be Italian? Most people won't find any interest in this and that's fine, but i look at it as audio archeology... either dig in or don't.
If you missed it and or are interested, i did a similar post about a record from a millitary man HERE:
