I would be remiss if I didn't mention that today is Vinyl Record Day with blogswarm postings across the blogosphere. You can find a summary at The Hits Just Keep On Comin'. Thank you Edison. My love of vinyl began with my mother's Elvis Presley 45's and then the first record I bought was Chuck Berry's "My Ding-A-Ling" probably at the Clark's department store in Murfreesboro. I later ended up with so many records I was able to sell off half of my collection to pay for a trip to London for me and my wife in 1998.
