    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    This came up on my playlist randomly, so you know I had to find it on youtube and share it here.

    It is a strange video, but I liked the song.

    Gunsmoke isn't all that far back, is it? I enjoyed watching it  :shrug.

    Apparently one of my relatives went on a date with Festus. She was quite a bit younger than he was at the time and didn't reschedule a second date.

    So, for the record, did he show up as "Festus" or Ken Curtis ?    :hmm

    IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    Another German March by Kaso.  This was a hard one to find a good version that did not have a video reel glorifying Nazism.  Most of them were one or the other.  This is a good one that is SFW.

    I don't know if you could really "jam" to these, but I'm rapidly coming to appreciate the "Crooners" from the mid-30s through the mid-50s. Particularly this gentleman, even if he allegedly hated being considered a "Crooner."

    It doesn't have to be a straight up banger for you to post it here. Just post the music you like  :cool. I love the old big band and USO music (except Cab Calloway). Frank Sinatra made some of the best love songs ever, in my opinion. Then again the man was so madly in love with Ava, that when he thought they were through he tried to commit suicide by sticking his head in an oven, so I guess the passion was there for some powerful lyrics.

    First 3 are my all time favourites. Enjoy!
