The Return of the Vinyl Junkie


Will discuss record collecting and how it’s returned in full force; the care, feeding, and sources of vinyl and hi-fi equipment, and where to find and what to expect to pay for recordings. Will also discuss types of music that are collectible and approximate value. Will briefly discuss history of phonograph records. I’ll show samples of jacket art and play clips of early, scarce recordings by artists who later "made it big."
