Brian, you story brings something similar to mine.  I grew up mostly 
in Germany, plus a bunch of other places as a true army brat (and 
loved it all).  When I was about 5, so in 1964 or so, my parents 
bought a large Grundig stereo and they played the same music you 
describe.  I can imagine sitting by the cabinet and now being older, 
holding a cup of one of the better roasts as I listen.  I also 
listened to American Armed Services Radio and hear Gunsmoke, Green 
Latern, and the Lone Ranger - boy, am I showing my age!!!  When 
television came to us the music left and we had Uncle Otto for four 
hours of American programming.  Pretty cool.  Certainly didn't have 
the 300 channels we have now with fiber and such.  Thank you for 
stirring the memories.

That brings back some memories
for me, Ray. In 1958 my parents bought
a Zenith hi-fi, with a main cabinet housing radio and turntable, and
speakers, of course, and a satellite cabinet, all in cherry. For the
time it was quite a unit. I had no albums of my own and played my
mother's. One of my favorites was Morton Gould playing 1812 Overture
on side A, with cannons at all the good spots, and Bolero on side B.
To this day I don't think I have heard a better version of
either.
Wish I could brew up some horse and listen to that combo again right
now....
