This blog ain’t got no moral.
This blog ain’t never final.
This blog is actually just some talk
About a box of vinyl.

Welcome to my box of records. Here is where I chit chat about experiences, food, and records. I actually focus a lot more on shellac (or “wax”) records than I do true vinyl. This blog is all peppered with comments about my travel, as I search for bargain records and other collectables!
Thanks to the Radiola radio show (which loops on Live 365 all the time), I recently took a liking to old music from the 20’s and 30’s. I am an amateur record collector, so here in my blog you will read about old records from my “newbie” point of view.
To me, collecting records is sort of like collecting coins: they are a part of history, they each have a story of some kind, and the labels are usually beautiful. I enjoy looking at them, talking about them, looking FOR them, and especially playing them on my record players. 😉
P.S. Yes, you guessed it: the black and white image in the header is a photo of me.
