A cherished childhood memory--found!

Oh, my goodness. I found it: the recording of the retelling of Cinderella that was burned into my brain synapses in my childhood. We had the LP, and I listened to it probably hundreds of times. I remembered lots of it verbatim but I couldn't imagine where I could find a recording.

Here it is, and you can download it, and dozens of other recordings of children stories that were sold in the 50s and 60s. Did you listen to any of these?

Another expanded list.

OMG! Tale Spinners! Yes, yes, they are me!

I will never forget the wife saying "Something must be done, husband, something must be done!" in their version of "Hansel and Gretel."

That looks really familiar but the only story record I clearly remember having as a kid was Peter & the Wolf. Possibly this version, I'm not sure.
