My parents once had old-fashioned record players they had owned for ages, a turntable which sat in a large wooden box. I burned through two of those in a year. Eventually I got a proper stereo with a amp, turntable, cassette deck and two sizeable speakers.  Those first components had a short life too.

For I was always in my room, tearing through new records as often as my meager babysitting money could allow. Always listening, always discovering, always wanting more.

My record collection was sizable but dwarfed in comparison to  those of people I met in the music business. I walked into Blue Note Records with only two jazz LPs in my library and little knowledge, but I left with an appreciation for hard-bop and funky jazz. 

Time in the business left me jaded, so it was a huge surprise when I teamed up with Rosie G. to develop The Rosie G.spot, a hub for her showcase of independent artists. I had spent years excavating the past, but she brought me back to the future. It is with renewed fervor that I approach the thing I most love in the in the world, not as a player, but as a listener and fanatic. This site is not going to feature the latest pop sensations. Instead, We will focus on independent artists and stalwarts from other genres who keep music alive.

Music that is :Indispensable.

P.S. Not a stock photo. Those are some of well-worn LPs.
