Pat Chastain and the 45's....it's a respect thing!
Pat Chastain (creator of the Dan Wakefield Park) told me one day that he was willing to clean and catalog all the 45's in the classic Red Key Tavern's Jukebox, because, they are from Russ Settle's original collection and it's extremely important to the history of the Red Key. And Russ had great taste in music. Jim Settle said COOL and so he did. Here are the photographs taken in his kitchen to document some of the process.
Pat cataloged everything. Amazing.
There is a new stylus the box now... 'cause this one had performed well for many years through the smoky atmosphere of the Key through the nicotine years..
Holding back the true sounds of the great artists in this Jukebox. They sound amazing now!
while you spent a week cleaning the classic Settle Collection?
that Pat had under the 45's as he cleaned the labels. Wow!
Each one is done individually. Time....time....time....thanks for doing this Pat.
...one at a time!
Thanks again Pat.
