Michael, In one of your reviews you mentioned that you were selling records in Harvard Square in the early '70s. '72-'76 I was buying records mainly at the Harvard Coop (down river at MIT) but I did get to Harvard Square occasionally. We might have met. Remember Audio Lab on Elliot Street? I bought my first components there in around 1970.

I'm friendly with the long time manager of Audio Lab, Mike Volpe. The ownership is in the hands of the long-time owner's daughter.

Michael, do you have copies of those ads?

Michael Fremer's picture
You mean my ads for hi-fi and record stores? Yes.

Are you proud, or do you cringe a bit? Would you post any?

I'm embarrassed to admit that I live 10 miles north of Harvard Square and the last time I was there I looked for Audio Lab on Elliot Street. Didn't realize they had moved. Gotta stop in next time i'm down there

Or whatever it's called that has the Ben and Jerry's and Newbury Comics.

Walked by them in the Moving Co. building every day for four years going to class. Spent all my money buying DGG lps at the Coop for $4.99 each. Those were the days.

It's exactly what I expect here : true love about music and records, I ordered right away the Armstrong & Ellington and the New York City R&B. Thank you, it's like a gift to discover these fantastic records.
These insights of your collection are stellar.

I am finding that too with the message "Video has been removed by user".

Pity, it sounded interesting.

I watched it on YouTube. Best video you've ever done. Ever. Can't wait for Parts 2, 3, and 4.

Not sure why the above posts did not work right - Why has the video been removed?

Buell's last name is pronounced "Nyd'-ling-er" and Jaki's last name is pronounced "By'-ard".
Great interview, BTW.

I noticed you have a small LED type light above you Continuum and wondered if you get any noise/ interference from it as every light I have used like this is picked up as a small buzz by my system?
