1950s Teenage Advice - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.14

Each week on Vinyl Joblottin’ we buy a bundle of vinyl at auction (or find one in a record shop, charity shop, car boot sale, etc). The records are a slice of a collection, giving us a glimpse into a collector’s past. Then we spin each joblot into a theme for you.

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 14 here -

We’re going back to the 1950s this week with a joblot of records that are more than 60 years old. Quotes come from The Teen Age Book, a book that was published by my family just after WW2. It was recently given to me by artist Peter S Smith. It includes advice for teenagers from celebrities including actor James Mason, florist Constance Spry, lawn tennis champion Dorothy Round and editor Phyllis Digby Morton. 

Alban Low is your Joblotter. Part of the 'A World in London' radio series. This Joblot of 6 records cost £4.46.

1. I'm On A See-Saw - Cleo Laine
2. High Class Baby - Franklyn Boyd And The Charlie Staircase Seven
3. Alone Together - The Phil Moody Quintet
4. Alone - The Shepherd Sisters
5. Rosmarie (Reet Petite) - Peter Kraus
