Where are you in relation to my step-parents (the extreme west side of Wichita)?
It’s about an hour south of Wichita, between Winfield and Arkansas City. My spouse’s ancestors are from here. Her aunt still has about 900 acres in the area.
We went to an antique shop at the request of our 14-yr.-old (the only one who left there empty-handed). These are among the findings:

I’m not sure i can actually play any of these records… our turntable goes to 78rpm but, I’ve learnt, one needs the right kind of stylus for these records. This was just for the sake of collecting 'em. (Bennie Moten hasn’t walked the earth in close to 90 years)
“Swing” halbreed, I believe. Pretty fun tune. Haven’'t listened to the second version yet.
ETA: Listened to Ella; tasty.
