Do you know what this is? Do your kids? This is an old long playing 33-1/3 (microgroove) record. I don't have a record player to play it on but it is still a treasure to me.
It is a record of Peter and the Wolf by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. The date on it is 1949, the year I was born. My Mom liked all kinds of music including classical. When my brother and I were sick we would get to listen to Peter and the Wolf. There is a different instrument for each character. Because it was saved for special times we thought we were very lucky to listen to this wonderful music. I'm not sure if Mom had that planned out or just figured we were a captive audience when we were sick! Listening also helped fill the time until Grandpa got off work and came over to make us some of his special eggnog.
My brother called me several years ago to tell me a radio station was playing Peter and the Wolf. I have also gone to summer concerts in our park to listen to this delightful music. It has been awhile so I think I need to see if I can find a CD. After all, I wouldn't want my Granddaughter to miss out on this special concert.Happy Halloween!
