Most of my allowance and later a large percentage of my "earned income" was spent on records. I confess.

"Hello, my name is Gary and I'm a record junkie."

I used to have about 3,000 albums at one point. Some very valuable on the collectors market, others I just for listening.

I loved record stores and for a brief period worked for Musicland  and later when I was transferred to Texas. Of course, most of what I made stayed right there in the store!

Today, Saturday is/was (and by the time I quit rambling and get this post of the latter will be the more accurate)  National Record Store Day. A day to celebrate RECORDS!

Do you miss vinyl records, or do you prefer the compressed sound of CD's (soon going the way of records) or do you go for MP3?  That's our poll for this week!
