"When I was five years old, I heard my first phonograph recording. I was in the pasture, with a pet pig of mine, and was startled by the sound of music coming from the house. When I got there, there was this little suitcase looking concern on the porch, with a crank, and music was coming from it. I couldn`t understand how all those people could fit inside that little suitcase." - From the 1990 Whitestar Biography "Gentleman Jim Reeves: The Story Of A Legend" (Interview recorded in 1964)
