    That one got me thinking... because I know FM mono was invented before WWII and stereo in the 50s... and Ive got some 50s and 60s vintage stereo gear with FM dials.

    I went and looked it up on Wikipedia and it seems that FM stations didnt outnumber AM until 1978.. wow would have though it a lot earlier.

    So sorry I missed your birthday. So, Happy birthday a little late.


    I remember the day very well and watched it on our black & white tv set. Kids were young then (5 & 6). Work was steady and had just received a promotion. Life was good. Still is.

    I was in Bothel, WA the day Elvis died, installing instant heating system in new suburban boxes and hating it. I walked off the job that day and never went back. Got a speeding ticket on the way back home too.

    Such an unassuming man, for what he did.

    I also remember it was the summer of Charles Manson.

    I had a cap gun that would shoot a #8 shot. Might wanna rethink that.>> (little bastage would sting, but not break skin).
