In the late 1950s and early 1960s, a young boy named John Gasperik was often spotted walking around the neighborhood with a 45 in his hand. The 45 (not a gun), was Elvis's Hound Dog. He would play that record on anyone's turntable that would listen. By the mid sixties, two new discoveries were made; The Beatles and Garage Sales. Since then, the collection has mushroomed into the mass collection available at Shake Rag Music today.
