It’s been about 4 years since I purchased myÂ first record player. When I moved out to San Francisco for a job, I was broke and spent most of my time in my tiny studio apartment alone because I couldn’t afford to go out with friends. Well…to be honest, I didn’t have that many friends at the time either.
So with one of my first paychecks, I made a (somewhat) sketchy visit to a basement via a craigslist ad to purchase my Sony turntable and then picked up my YamahaÂ receiver from a local thrift store.Â I immediately hooked everything up to the worst speakers you can think of, not knowing any better, and listened to my first record, Herbie Hancock’s “Speak likeÂ a Child”, for about three days straight.
For how broke I was when I first moved out to San Francisco, being able to enjoy a record, for only the price of a few bucks at a thrift store or yard sale, was pretty meaningful to me.
Now, 4 years later, I have updated my speakers and got some proper storage bins. I made dividers with some soft foam boards and glued on letters to help me stay a little organized. To make the area feel a little more “me” I added some art and, of course, some skulls.
