Welcome to Kiddie Records Weekly, Classics from the Golden Age. Their purpose is to share those classic stories with you and your children, or your grandchildren. Come here to listen to these classics with them.
All the past weeks are archived so you can spend quite some time here surfing through this collection. From Roy Rogers to Woody the Woodpecker there are some famous voices to grace your ears with.
I remember listening to these kinds of records on my record player, and going to the grocery store to get a new "Peter Pan" record. Sometimes the records came with "Read Along" books. I used to check the records out of the library every weekend as well. I want for my children and their children to be able to share the experience, even if it is through an mp3 file on the internet.
They are doing us a great service in preserving what was on these records for future generations. To surf this site you can use the side menu or you can click on the record album covers to visit different sections of the archive.
You'll notice that the albums are scheduled ahead too by date. So you have a good idea of when you want to come back for a certain album. This site is a treasure, don't you think it is time to go treasure hunting?
