Bruce Warren of WXPN has a dialogue on his Facebook page asking followers to name the first 45 you bought. Some of the responses made me laugh: Seasons in the Sun, You and Me and A Dog Named Boo, Kung Fu Fighting. This posting may not apply to those born after 1980. The responses are definitely dictated by baby boomers.
My first purchased single: Mrs Robinson by Simon & Garfunkel. I would probably still have it today if my brother hadn't broken it during a fight. It's amazing how that first purchase is ingrained in everyone's brain. It was so exciting to be able to buy a record with my money. I'm guessing this is different for kids now. Will they remember the first song they ever downloaded? Do you remember the first 45 you bought?
