@bisguittin , @padre_power , @elcamry thank you all for your greetings. @bisquittin , @padre_power I got interested in turntables when my teenage son found a handful of vinyl in the garage and asked if he could look at them. With all the stuff happening in the world, it reminded of simpler times. Then a few days later during the end of the lockdown a friend texted that he was, “3 wines in” listening to Bowie’s Life on Mars on vinyl and feeling young again. Which made me think maybe I should get a turntable and all the thing$ that go with it. I sold a lot of records in the mid 80s to buy CDs and kept about a 50 or so of my favourites stored at my parents’ house. When I was moving to Adelaide from NY and went looking for my records, she told me she moved them to the basement. Unfortunately, most of them were destroyed due to moisture and water damage. I’ve got about a half a dozen left and with today’s prices I can see it going to be an expensive hobby to build up the collection again.
