My birthday gift a month early
I have a stack of records that I just don't want to get rid of...for you youngsters reading this, records are also called albums and LP's and my Mom gave us two good sized boxes of the records that she and Daddy collected over the years. Many of those I have no interest in but some are ones I remember hearing when I was still a kid at home and would like to hear again.
Since the advent of CD's we have been collecting our favorite albums on CD when they become available. But several of my favorites are not yet and from what I can find out will not be out on CD.
We have a turntable that came with a stereo but hooking it up to the stereo and that to the computer and hoping everything went just right was a major pain. So my records have just sat waiting to be heard someday.
Today I got my birthday present early. We found a USB Turntable (brand name ION) at Hot Topic, unusual store for it but whatever works. Randy got it hooked up for me and now I can record my records to the computer then to a CD and even a DVD for long term storage in case a CD gets scratched or broken.
I started with the Exile album then moved to the stack of Ed Ames records. Got two albums recorded before the Rod Stewart concert on PBS started. I am going to be having a blast from the past getting these recorded.

i grew up with albums and 45's,so i hear ya!,like to find a decent turntable myself,listen to some boston,frampton,and some seger..lol
Vinyl is final. We have over 600 of them. I keep thinking we should put some on ebay, Richard says no. We have everything from AC/DC to ZZ Top, with a lot of reggae for good measure.
That's just great Toni, backing up memories is good. Now you should never lose them. I didn't even know USB turntables existed but you can get everything USB powered nowadays :)
What a grreat find Toni and definately a wonderful birthday gift.
Oh Toni, lucky you! I still have my albums too but no where to play them. I need a new needle for my turntable...NOT an easy thing to find these days!
