I’m having a blast!

December 1, 2010

I’m going crazy with digitizing right now. I’ll start posting some of this stuff soon, maybe this weekend. Are there any Tony Martin fans out there? Apparently my grandpa was one, or at least went on a Tony kick. I just digitized over 10 records of his show for Bourjois. Right now I’m doing a bunch of “Your Hit Parade” shows, which are really fun. Most of these records are in pretty good shape, so it won’t take me long to get them ready to post.

The death of my 33.3rpm motor has actually turned out to be a good thing. I can record records in less than half the time on 78, and there doesn’t seem to be any loss from changing the speed digitally.  I’d still like to get the 33.3 fixed, but it’s not a priority. Now, if the 78 goes out too… but I won’t even think about that possibility.

Anyway, just keep watching this space! And if you want to listen to some tunes to get you into the Christmas spirit, check out these posts from last year:  Christmas 1946, Christmas 1945.
