Melomania: A singular passion for music that is beyond all reason. From the French melomanie, from the Latin melos, song + -mania, frenzy.

Melomania is both a creative outlet and a way to share one's obsessive love of recorded music with other melomaniacs!

Once every 4 weeks, group members will meet to exchange mix CDs (that they'll have made especially for the occasion) and to chat about music with other members. The location will always be affordable, or will have options for low-income members.

We also maintain a pretty extensive Message Board to discuss all things music-related and we will hold other events/activites depending on member interest.

So if you love music, love talking about music AND looove making mix tapes (and are able to burn your mixes to CD), then this group's for you!

    "Great company, though the record show itself was really about LPs above all else - it's not as balanced as it once was."
