|Introduction||Welcome to my strand of the web. I am an amateur collector of 78 rpm records. I won't say that I'm obsessed with this hobby...|
but my wife will.
It all started after watching the Glenn Miller movie "Orchestra Wives" with my Grandmother.
Spending a few hours combing through piles of shellac looking for Big Band 78's was my idea of fun.
Looking back on those early days, I wonder how many gems I overlooked while feverishly searching for commons.
Not much can compare with the rush of finding something rare and collectible in a stack of dusty, musty grooves etched with dormant sounds of eras gone by just begging for a spinning platter and a probing stylus to bring it back to life...
...if just for 3 minutes more.
