    Yeah, I know that the first thing that always comes to mind when I think about romance is . . . . Jackie Gleason. ;)

    I have a pair of those exact ones. I bought them like 15 years ago at Bombay Company. They have been my living room speaker stands ever since. They’ve been great and still going strong!

    You can't put a price on a good education, but life can be pretty quick to nickel and dime the lessons out of you sometimes :)

    In most cases, the lesson is often worth the cost.

    My favorite Gleason cover is Lonesome Echo where Salvador Dali did the artwork.

    I would like to find that one just to frame it! I currently have the cover for Jackie Gleason presents music, martinis, and memories hanging above the stereo in my bar / man cave area. Funny thing is that I've never really been a Jackie Gleason fan... But I love the album covers

    It is a great cover. I've found a few copies over the years and I've sold them quickly because of the Dali artwork. Not a fan either, but the art won me over.

    Picked up a pair of AR 38s speakers today at the GW outlet. I somehow managed to to walk right past them without seeing them until I was almost out of the store. After $15 and two trips via shopping cart, they were in my car. There are a few minor scratches on the cabinets and one of the badges is gone, but everything else seems to be in order. I plan to test them tonight after work. :cool:

    BTW, I spied a pair of DCM Time Windows at another thrift store today, but didn't think I could justify the cost after already getting the AR's. They were a *bit* more than $15, in case inquiring minds would like to know more.
