When it's 78 O'Clock, the past is always the present. Today's show was a sampling of lighter, pop music found on 78 RPM records.

Groups like Herbert Gordon's Adelphi Hotel Whispering Orchestra The Manhatten Merrymakers provide music suitable for either foreground or background. Nothing very stellar or memorable here: Accordion, Marimba, Xylophone, Harmonica Novelty groups provide a nice, smoothly polished way to spend a few hours.
