My name is Donnie, born and raised in Atlanta, and a friend of Doyle’s since the mid-1980s. As you can tell from his blog posts, Doyle is a collector of records. That goes for me also, since the age of 13. Part of being a record collector is the record hunting itself, exploring new places by foot, bus or automobile. Each record emporium had its own unique atmosphere and vibe. In these posts, I will recall some of these places. Almost all of them are gone now. I intend to post my vinyl odyssey chronologically, but eventually there will be some jumping around the timeline also.
