“Let Us Now Praise 45s” with ‘Hey, it’s Fran. Again.’

Another great and genuine YouTube eccentric, Fran creates and builds the “FranTone” fuzz boxes. And the Vibutron. And the PeachFuzz. And the Sputnik. And the Hi-Ball. And so much more.    But she is much more brilliantly off-center than that. And she knows her stuff. More than that, she knows stuff you’ve forgotten.  She even knows stuff you’ve forgotten that you didn’t know in the first place. After all, rock and roll never started rocking until the creation of fuzz.

    First 45 I ever bought was “One” by 3 Dog Night in 1969 for 88 cents & 4 cents tax at Woolworth in the Edison Mall in Fort Myers, FL.

    “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do”.

    Fran’s a bit quirky, but that has an element of hotness to it.

    Was always losing that little insert that let you play a 45 on a 33 turntable. Great video of the record player…first a ‘thump’ as the 45 dropped down and the ‘clunk’ as the tone arm hit the disc and the scratchy noise when the needle found the groove…..a cave man could do it.

    A great and refreshing break! Check out her tone boxes and the vids that accompany her ads. She plays a mean bass and lead guitar, too. No wall flower, this one.

    Y’all do realize that she’s a he, don’t you?
