    I noticed "Afternoon Delight" on a "One Hit Wonders" thread on a music message board earlier this week. It was a No. 1 hit in 1976.
    They never had anything in even the top fifty again.

    I hadn't heard it in decades but I've always liked the harmonies.

    I noticed a copy on eBay for £3.99 with free postage, so I said, "hang the expense" and bought it.
    I'd bought another single a month or so ago, but hadn't yet put it in one of my jukeboxes.

    So I've been on one of my jukebox enthusiast's website and downloaded the title cards in PDF form to cut out and use. This is a free service, I hate seeing jukeboxes with hand-written title cards.

    You go on the site, type 'em up in styles, colours and fonts of your choice and print them off.


    I bought the Rainbow one on eBay a few weeks ago.

    Forty-two years ago, we had a birthday party for my wife's 40th birthday.

    There were a few of my friends there from my squash club, but mostly hers, who were of similar ages. I'd made up a few cassette tapes of contemporary popular music that would appeal mostly to her friends, but included these two. There was a bit of a shocked reaction from some of her friends, unfamiliar with heavy metal. It always makes me smile when I think about it. I've not yet put it in.

    Anyway, the new record arrived today. Unlike iPods, if you want to put a different record in a vinyl jukebox, you have to choose one to take out. In this case Stevie Wonder has joined many others in my "retro" record rack.

    There you go.

    I really like your attention to details, and I agree with you on the hand-written-label stance.
