Memories of Motown

I spent my teen years in Chicago listening to Motown records. My Christmas and elementary school graduation wish in January 1958 was to have a stereo. My parents purchased one from Sears Roebuck and I was in love. I remember its sound and exact location in the house. It had a radio and a record player, so I could play 45’s, 78’s, and LP albums. Being a teen, records and radio were my only sources of music.
