Thanks Lou for your response! They are 78's and I do not have a list yet but I will list them tonight and send you another message. The case they are in is in perfect condition for its age and the records are good but not perfect. Obviously they were being used...LOL

My parents were avid expert square dancers! Those are not a DJs, but music for square dancing to - if the calls are on the they are the special guest callers, if there are no calls they are the music for the callers to use live.
I am not into it but could find many square dancers to give or sell them to. A list would be good! Are they 78 or 45s?
Do any of you know that square dancing is the only true American folk dance, not derived from imported folk dances? Just as jazz is I idiomatically American, so is square dancing. Or so my parents told me!
