I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for since the relaunch almost two months ago. It would be part of the month of daily posts but that ended up falling apart/to way side in the end. However, now I’m back to regular posting I can write it.

So for anyone around my age (I’m 34) or older we all grew up with physical music e.g. CDs and Vinyl Records being the only way to listen to music. Obviously that isn’t how things are now and I use streaming services like Spotify as much as the next person but I still own a lot of physical Albums roughly 400-500 CDs and about 80 LPs. I imagine that aside from the new releases I buy that got a good few spins when I first buy them that only a small percentage of those albums get played in a year. Well after watching a YouTube video by the Channel 33 RPM I’ve decided that I’m going to try and change that. Now in his video Channel 33 RPM says he has taken down the 50 LPs that he has out on display near his turntable and replaced them with 50 he hand picked from his collection and he’d be doing this on a regular basis to get the most out of his record collection. He also discussed how he was already getting a lot out of it and rediscovering old albums he’d neglected for years. Once I’ve moved house and unpacked later this year I’ll setting myself my own challenge though it’ll be more like a 20 Album challenge as I don’t have a dedicated music room like Channel 33 RPM.

I hope this post inspires you guys to dig deep into your collections. Let me know about your experiences and rediscovers in the Comments.
