Ron's Dream Jukebox

When Ron was young, he always wanted a jukebox for his 45s. A real jukebox would have ground his 45s to a powder, so it's good that he never had one. Instead, as a grown-up, Ron fantasized about a fictional jukebox. On this weekly feature, Ron populated his dream jukebox, one 45 at a time. The dream jukebox holds 100 45s, and was completed close to Ron's 45th birthday.
