Hello Children  

Here are the children's record pages for adults. My intention in these pages is to look back to the 1950s and 1960s, and where appropriate to even earlier, to examine the records that were played to children.

Whereas today, children are largely faced with having to listen to adult pop music, some care was taken in earlier radio broadcast to play children's music to children.

At the bottom of this page, I provide a check list of the types of records that were played to children on Junior Choice. The pages that follow this one provide further examples.

Please read this page. Then please go forward to Children's Records Page 2
