And then there is that pungent odor of some of the Melodia boxed
sets...smelling like something the cat dragged in.

And then...speaking of stream of conciousness...there is the
disc..."Perfume set to music." Which leads me to the theremin and a
question...

Just encountered a Victor 78 featuring the theremin. I wondered if anyone
knew if they issued many discs featuring the theremin. I had never
encountered this disc before, but assume they released it since, as I
recall, Victor sold theremin's at one time.
