    Every Time I Take A Trip

    When I go on vacation, I always make sure to seek out the tiniest little out-of-the-way antique shop or record store and select a record to commemorate my trip. I don't know how this tradition even got started with me, but I have done it for years. lol I have several records...

    The Crown Jewel Of My Collection

    I have a few real winners in my collection of 33's, 45's and 78's...but the best is "Meet the Beatles". That album plays well still and is in great condition. I enjoy my collection greatly and add to it when I can. We still listen to Christmas music on vinyl every year as well...

    Started In 1964

    My Record Collection

    I collect Vinyl records.  Everyone make fun of me for this, I get called a hippie or some will say " the 70's are dead"!  There is one person who understands my excitement and need for vinyl... you know who you are!

    I Love Records, Too!

    The phonograph was invented in 1878, it's been around for a long time and they're still making them here and there. Even Lady Gaga's new album is on vinyl! What would DJs of today do without records? The Compact Disc came out in the mid 1980s, and it's already dead, so the...
