45 RPM Thursday

On March 31st, 1949, RCA Victor released the first 7 45s RPM records in order to promote its new record format. Thursday Night we honor the 45 on its 59th birthday with special guest, Jerry Osborne, author of the “Rockin’ Records” price guides. We’re going to play the very first 45 pressed by RCA Victor on this special program. Imagine rock n’ roll without the 45? Impossible. It was an unbreakable medium on the go and kids in the 1950s took their 45s everywhere. Now find out what some of your favorites are worth and why some 45s are more valuable than others.
