The NEW LP Craze...

I have my parents old record player. Actually it is more like a huge piece of furniture. It is a beautiful wooden piece that houses speakers, a turntable and radio. When we finished our basement I brought this piece from the garage into the house and down to the newly finished part of our home. It really is a glorified bedroom for our son Jordan...he uses almost the entire basement for his "bedroom". In about 30 minutes there was music coming from this stereo...Jordan knew how to rewire things and hook up his iPod to this wooden machine from 1969. WOW! I soon heard music that I knew I did not have in digital form...Jordan had removed the old turn table and hooked up a new turntable to this stereo...and the new fascination with vinyl was born!! Jordan has been listening to a lot of my old records and we have been talking about some of the great old bands etc...Now Jordan is finding that some of his favourite artists are putting their new music out on vinyl. He bought some new LP's and is loving it. We are taking on a project to refurbish the old stereo with new equipment and a new turntable!! We are enjoying looking at the old music and finding out that this technology is not yet dead! We have gone shopping for a new turntable and new speakers and we are enjoying something that we get to build together! Jordan is learning a real appreciation for the vinyl and we are having fun looking back in time and finding out that the "old" technology is still finding a place in this modern day!!
