I came across these images of a lady who obviously likes her vinyl....


   


PD take note  8)
Oh, cool! I suspect that she had a specially-for-her built house though!  Love that she has library ladders too!  Did you notice that in the second picture that in the room beyond, there are compact bookstacks/movable track shelving.  More LPs?  Or is that where she keeps her books?  ;D 

Ah, I just checked out the article (haven't watched the film yet); looks like most of it is Latin and Caribbean music?   :)    https://thevinylfactory.com/films/gladys-palmera-latin-american-vinyl/

No, it is all vinyl. Her books are in another part of the house.

Yes, she apparently specializes in Latin and Caribbean music.

I did watch the film. It is in Spanish and I speak no Spanish but it was still interesting.

And a radio station too!  8)  I watched some of the longer film.  Am having trouble finding their shorter version with the subtitles though.  Any idea where one can see that Fergus?

EDIT:  Never mind, I found it.  It's here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfFdSRkpqbM

Thank you for the link, PD.

You're welcome Fergus.  :)  I found it to be quite interesting (both of them actually, though like you, I don't speak Spanish so the original version was lost on me in many respects).  Found it to be quite amazing that she went from (originally asked) hosting a radio program to starting her own radio stations in three cities in Spain!

Yes, indeed, PD. I found her and her collection fascinating especially that really thick vinyl and the huge one which must be nearly 24". Wonderful.

Trying to recall what I read ages ago about those huge (wide) records.  Weren't they used for awhile in radio stations?

I honestly have never seen them before. I do not know how they would be played. Surely a very large platter would be required?

They are called Transcription discs mainly used by radio stations. I have seen a BBC modified Garrard 401 with an enlarged platter.

Classics and Vinyl for their latest upload feature Sinfonia Concertante by Malcolm Williamson. A most imaginative choice which I enjoyed greatly.

Kicking myself! Came across the double LP between lockdowns and passed as already having the VC included on my shelves.

You can't get them all but, yes, I hate when that happens.

Whenever I'm sensible I end up regretting it and not only collecting records! :D

1981



All I lack is an elevator.

lol Personally, if I came across that LP, I think that I might recoil in horror and run away screaming.  ;)

Muzak gets a bad rap, but I actually kind of enjoy it in the background in some settings--the airport for example.

I can also tell you that I'd rather listen to Muzak than much of what passes for "music" in our society. (Does that make me a snob? I hope so!  :P  )

New purchase (from Sweden):
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).
