I used to play my father’s 78 rpm records that were in the basement, I still have some of them, the ones that survived. They would break easily (see the meme gif of Donna Reed breaking one from “It’s A Wonderful Life”), so started my love affair with records. I worked in a record store for a time too and have never stopped being enchanted by vinyl. I like to link them together with a common thread, currently for this show Springtime and have also have displayed winter themes and have an upcoming one of The Beatles.
