Juri Gagarin in Space

Juri Gagarin in Space 7" (MEN, 1961)

Happy Cosmonaut Day! Forty-six years ago today, Yuri Gagarin of the USSR became the first man in space and the first person to orbit the Earth! What better way to celebrate Gargarin's achievement than listening to a Soviet record commemorating Yuri's historic journey. Listen and you will hear a Soviet announcer tell us of Yuri's great deed and how the Soviet system made it possible and then hear Gagarin speaking from space! I am not going to give you a run down of Yuri's history as others have done it better than I can.
