Four Tunes Enjoy Victor '45' Record Player
[Above newspaper clipping provided by Richard Koloda.]

Above: Newspaper clipping from January 7, 1950: The Four Tunes, RCA Victor's sensational singing find, enjoy pefectly recorded playbacks of latest Victor hits on the new 45 RPM phonograph. All the "tunes" agree that the "Swing to 45" is the thing. The quartet's latest RCA Victor waxing, "Lonesome Road," backed up by "A Fool In Love" is slated to be a hit, reviewers say.
