was texting me frantically from an estate sale.to get my booty over there!... three days later we emerged and started looking through all the boxes of treasures we bought to see what was actually there!!! (yes, we went home at night but too exhausted to unpack everything!) have you been to a sale like that? it's awesome
AAnnnyyywhooo...... long story short .... at the VERY end of the sale I ended up grabbing a projector and some discs I THOUGHT went with it.........
fast forward 2 later that night......... started checking out the projector and opened the little blue folder and saw "REVOLUTION THE BEATLES" ........hhhhhhmmmmmm?! this doesn't go with the projector!
here's what I found........
mini records in vending machines?! If you didn't, don't feel too bad, it didn't take much to miss the very brief period these little discs were offered...1968-69...less then two years! Americom Corporation of New York introduced a new music format for singles called the pocket disc. Some came in little blue or red cardboard folders and they were sold at the counter or in special vending machines.
