I am first and foremost a music lover. I have been listening and collecting for more than 35 yrs. now. I have amassed more than 6000 vinyl LP records, and 10,000 45 rpm record. I also collect pre-recorded reel-to-reel stereo tapes (over 1000). Some personal faves include such perrennials as Sinatra, The Beatles, Elvis and many more current artists such as Nick Cave, Norah Jones, Tom Waits and many many others. Another hobby of mine is my extensive collection of vintage and high end audio equipment. It is a great source of enjoyment and pride for me to be able to listen and share my music colections on some of the finest equipment available. I also collect modern home furnishings from the 1950's and assorted pop culture and nostalgic bric-a-brac. Love searching for treasures at yard, garage, rummage and estate sales. Basically, I am a pop culture junkie. Enjoy listening to Pandora while computing.
