Confessions of an old school Musicholic! Vinyl rules!
I know this is an primarily and art blog, but music is my 2nd love after art! In my high school days I used to stay up until all hours listening to my favorite radio stations, often drawing and painting at the same time. I had piles of cassette tapes from recording my fav songs and DJ's from the radio.
As you can see above, I still have all my vinyl albums that I collected growing up and beyond. I used to go to Woolworths and get a record album for $3.99. I can't bring myself to part with my collection and I still play them on occasion. 10 years ago or so I started to catalog all the records and what they are worth. Some are pretty rare, but they are all priceless to me!
I also have a nice collection of 45 rpm records. When I was making the big bucks before I retired to pursue art we got a jukebox so I could play my singles. I love playing the old songs and singing along. Songs like ' The Night Chicago Died' and 'Treat Her Like a Lady'.
Next week I'll be back to art because YAY- I just won a couple of awards for one of my paintings.
Anyone else out there still listen to their vinyl - I'd love to read your comments.
