    listening booth, Wallachs Music City, 1953 by Manitoba Museum of Finds Art, via Flickr - There were listening booths in many record stores in the 1950s and 1960s. This one is in Hollywood, CA. I've listened to music in those booths MANY times in the 1960s. Also in Sound City in Canoga Park, CA. You could take a stack of albums in there and listen to them before you bought anything...and you weren't required to buy anything.

    My dad would take me with him. I'd put the earphones on inside the booth, and listen to jazz and big band music. This was the neatest environment for music lovers. I think about this fairly frequently!

Old skool / Listening booths. People used to go to record stores and listen to records in a "listening booth"...quite an event!

...well, not ALL 8 flavors are delicious--the chocolate and licorice flavors can take a hike, but those purple clove ones? NOW those are worth buying the whole pack for. I still buy these every year to put in the kids' shoes on New Year's Eve (what? Santy Bogus doesn't come to your house on New Year's Eve and leave candy in the shoes by the fireplace? This must be a southern mountain thing.)

WOW! My aunt had those tiered shelves, everyone had a mixer like that I think, the cupboards and counter tops I remember from so many homes, my mom, aunts, and grandmas always wore an apron in the kitchen....this brings back so many memories

Record store, where you used to sit down and use the headphones to listen to the records before you decided to buy them :)
