All About the Vinyl Guy



I am the vinyl record guy, the radio guy, the turntable guy and the guy for many vintage and retro funk rare and collectible finds in music, books, baseball and more.


After 35 years in radio and 2 in print, I decided to start my own company to sell, buy and collect vinyl, plus many other items.

See my Home page for a link to the over 4000 vinyl records I have for sale on Amazon.

I was one of the first group of people who helped launch and man KCMU, the college radio station for the University of Washington, back in 1972-1973. I’ve been gathering thoughts, information, remembrances and photos from many of the other people who have been part of the history of radio in Seattle, Washington. As KCMU went through changes through the years, it eventually evolved into KEXP, an internationally known groundbreaking public radio station.

Please share your thoughts, comments, ideas and memories here on my website and blog.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
