About me

Occupation Blogging Atomic Age Records
Location Kentucky, United States
Introduction My blogs are all about sharing obscure and sometimes odd recordings. My three blogs feature introductions to vintage & unique gospel recordings, atomic age pop and lounge/strange music.

My gospel blog, The Good, Bad & Ugly Gospel Record Barn features Cincinnati, Ohio and Northern Kentucky area artists who recorded on local labels such as Jewel, Rite and Queen City Album.

I post only sample tracks from LPs and not entire albums. What I have to share is offered here. For a long list of reasons I do not share files by any other method.

I realize relatives and friends may find posts featuring people they knew or know. I hope you will be pleased with what you read.

The worst fate for an artist, I believe, is to be completely forgotten. I do not blog many of the albums I find because the recordings fail to share a personal vision or a special energy. Liking or disregarding art is relative to your experience, but I think that it is better to be remembered for something crazy, than for nothing at all.
