FReeper Canteen ~ Fabulous FRiday ~ 25 May 2012
May 24, 2012 | Canteen Crew

Posted on 05/24/2012 6:29:20 PM PDT by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

Music Night
To keep you all in the mood
for the music thread
Fabulous FRiday is going to be about
the 45 rpm record
Remember the 45s?
Never heard of them?
Take a trip back in time to see what it's all about.

Tonight we check out the history of the 45.

The basic parameters of he music single
were established in the late 19th century,
when the gramophone record began to supersede
phonograph cylinders in commercial music.

The most common form
of the vinyl single is the 45 or 7 inch,
the names are derived from its play speed,
45 rpm and the standard diameter 7 3 (18 cm).

The 7 3 45 rpm record was introduced in 1949
by RCA as a smaller, more durable and higher-fidelity replacement
for the 78 rpm shellac discs.

The first 45 rpm records were monaural,
with recordings on both sides of the disc.

As stereo recordings became popular in the 1960s,
almost all 45 rpm records were produced in stereo by the early 1970s.

Although 7 3 remained the standard size for vinyl singles,
12 3 singles were introduced for use by DJs in discos in the 1970s.

Perhaps the golden age of the single was on 45's in the 1950s
and early 1960s in the early years of rock music.


Hope you enjoyed this trip back down memory lane.
Or just learned something new.
Tell us about your first 45 or your favorite.

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

Good (very early) Morning, Kathy! I am pleased to announce that my nephew, SPC Ted, has RETURNED HOME!!! I just saw his Welcome Home ceremony a few minutes ago live on the Internet. This was the end of his 2nd deployment. Hopefully, sometimes in the next few weeks, I’ll be able to see him in the flesh.

He will also be leaving the service soon after honorably serving his country.

I am a very happy uncle, and now I am going back to bed since it’s 3 o’clock in the freakin’ morning. God Bless You!

Good morning, all.

Looks like things are moving along faster than last night.
Can’t stay but wanted to peek in to see how FR & Canteen was doing this morning.

Apologies for not being able to stay around but when it took me a half hour to post 4 replies and it was approaching 10:30 pm ECT, I glued several clumps of my hair back to my head and crawled, whimpering, under the covers. hehe

Glad to know that it wasn’t just on my end, although I will have to try my codes again to see if the gremlin is still there...or have to start from scratch.

Thank you Ma for calling to check that I was really on the job. ;~)

Good mornin’, Beachy! I think last night was frustrating for
all. I finally gave up, too, but of course, I wasn’t trying
to post a whole thread! :) You did good with all the problems
hanging things up. I think the gremlins aren’t in YOUR code! :)

Have a great weekend! I, of course, being a retail worker,
have to work. bah!
