I still use my mono, AM only, 1957 Zenith Trans-Oceanic shortwave radio. It doesn’t sound that great but I’ve always been a fan of short wave radio and baseball games. While Deutsche Welle and the BBC no longer broadcast to the Americas, many stat...

Starting a Classical Vinyl Music Collection
I mostly collect CD’s and file downloads but also mono vinyl. Roughly 97% of my collection is classical/art music. Arkiv Produktion is a favorite of mine. They are a historical performance practice focused label and division of Deutsche Gramophone... 
Best Covers
The Bird and the Bee ‘A Tribute to Hall and Oats’. Never personally been a big fan of Hall and Oats but this is a worthwhile album.
