A few weeks back I spent the day hanging out at Musicol, the oldest recording studio in Columbus and one of the last vinyl pressing factories in the US. Calling it a vinyl pressing factory may be a bit of an overstatement since its just a couple of guys in the basement of a 1950's model home but don't let its size or humble looks fool you - this place is legendary among musicians and audiophiles.Read More

Earlier this year, much of the continental United States was treated to a rare solar eclipse. I made the drive from Columbus, Ohio to Southern Illinois where totality was longer than anywhere else in the country. The six and a half hour drive and the adventure that followed was one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
