    I remember all those songs. I have only one old 45 tucked away somewhere - Peggy Sue by Buddy Holly.
    Iris, was it Huey Lewis?

    I recognize most of them from both of your lists and actually have quite a few of them myself. I also still have a lot of vinyl (albums) but have been slowly letting go of some of them to a music store that sells vintage vinyl. Still holding back on my Dylan, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Neil Young etc. It would take a lot of courage to let those go, but I am trying to down size for the impending older age/move thing that will happen at some point. Books and records are some of the biggest collections I would have to deal with - the rest of the house is not so bad as far as "things".

    Long ago I gave my 45s to a guy who does an all-request pop-music show on a local radio station. Some were new to him; he made the redundant ones prizes in trivia contests among his music-addled fans. But if you don't know someone who'd be happy to see them, depending on where you live, there may be a local radio station or record store that would take them (probably not for $$). Otherwise, most of our local thrift stores still sell 45s and a craigslist/freecycle/Facebook/Nextdoor post or two should pass them on to an appreciative recipient.

    LPs are (generally) worth more; if you have a number of them, it likely would pay to find a record store and try to sell them; should come out a wash at worst and you might have some real gems worth $$ there. Or craigslist/ebay/Facebook for-sale could do it if you have some time and energy to pursue that route.

    I got rid of all vinyl in my last cross country move 22 years ago.

    Record players are back in vogue again. There are plenty of people who actually buy them. Maybe not for much, but something. And some are actually worth quite a bit to collectors.

    I recognized all of them Cathy. I was gifted a box of 200 45's when I got my first record player at 6 years old in the early 70's and I sang into my hairbrush every day. The box was a gift from my mom's youngest brother so the records covered the 50's, 60's and probably a few 40's thrown in as well as very early 70's. I think he gave it to me because he had moved on to 8 tracks. I can't believe it but I gave the box of records to one of the boys friends a few years ago.
    The record that created a life long love was Petula Clark's Downtown and I got to see her with Andy Williams maybe 10-15 years ago (I have all of her albums copied to CD's thanks to my MIL). Probably the record I played the most at age 8 was Dead Man's Curve. I was fascinated by the sound of a car skidding off a cliff in that song!

    Recognized most of both lists, and owned many of them myself. I had a stack of 45s almost as tall as I was at one time. Bought them at the drugstore uptown for .50-$1. I still have much of my old 33 vinyls...the ones a thieving babysitter didn't steal. He took all my Zeppelin !
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!
