I've always loved music. From the first record I paid for with my own money ("Kookie, Kookie - Lend Me Your Comb" by Edd Brynes), I was hooked. My collection grew and diversified through the years as I sought out all that was different as well as the current fads.
In high school (around 1968), I discovered FM and so-called "Underground Radio." I listened to WNEW-FM, WABC-FM (later became WPLJ) and other commercial stations as well as great college/community stations: WPKN, WBAI and my favorite in those days - WYBC, the college radio station for Yale University. They had some great shows and great DJs for a college station. I first heard Firesign Theatre, Blind Faith, Frank Zappa and many others on a late night show called "Diversions." I discovered Jazz on a show called "Afro-Blue."
Some of the DJs I remember from WYBC at the time were Gordon Winegarth, Malou, my favorite - Mitch Kapor, who after his DJ years at WYBC went on to found the Lotus Development Company - not bad for a dopey DJ!
While in college, I helped construct the on-campus radio station WNHU and hosted a weekly folk show for several years. Filling in for other DJs, I also expanded my horizons with all varieties of available sound.
In the past few years my collection has grown so large, I must share it with others - in order to make room for new items! About a year ago we started MASK Music, manning a booth at the Atlanta Record Show held semi-monthly. We always try and bring a wide selection to the show, so if you live near, or are visiting metro-Atlanta, please stop by our booth and say hey. I will post the show dates in the forum, and feel free to post any other record shows there as well.
Note: At almost every record show someone asks us where we got our name, it's nothing too mysterious, it's Mary's (the better half of Mask Music) initials!
