Introduction

I decided to organize this group because I miss talking about music w. other music junkies. I also had a show on CHUO for over 7 1/2 years and I really miss putting together playlists and sharing music w. others - I just don't miss the weekly grind.

What Al is saying about this Meetup Group

There is nothing else like it. Aside from trolling record stores, there aren't many places to meet up with music junkies and share one's passion for recorded music. Of course, I'm also the organizer - so you might not want to take my word for it. Instead, come find out for yourselves! ;)
