Think I should change my handle to Trainwreck. Geez Louise and I apologize for the sloppiness displayed.
To answer your other questions Ericj32, I haven’t catalogued the collection at all. I do have a book that listed everything up until those big collections started falling in my lap and gave up around 1990. The picture shows about 3,000 with 2,000 in another room. I go by the mood of the day when selecting what to play and find myself being surprised occasionally when I pull out something I’d forgotten I had. It’s an adventure every time.
You are totally fine - no need to apologize. This is one of the friendlier corners of the internet. I apologize if my nitpicking about your math came off as snarky - I got excited at the prospect of someone owning hundreds of vintage Christmas records, haha. That must be fun to explore your collection (and those you've inherited) and find cool surprises like that from way back when.

Didn't detect any snark at all so we're good. The most recent "find" was when a friend pulled out the Meters debut album and I didn't remember how it came to be in my possession.

I can’t wait for it to end!

Welcome back @Teeeee I've missed you! Have a look at our AoTMs from the last year if you’re in the humour!

I guess I should get started on that Year 3 thread huh 😳
Does this mean Gappy gap is taking over the HUGE THREAD OF EVERYTHING AOTM ?

Y'all be dears and tag me in a summary thread so I can catch up on these AOTMs. I will definitely listen to them all. And where is the current guess thread? I have a feeling Paula has been omitted.

Gap sure is! She is Ms AoTM Year 3 boss!

Willdo! Once @bfly announced her pick as the final one of year two sometime in may I’ll set up a year 2 review thread.

For the first couple of months there was someone who guessed Paula for you but that did tend to die out as the year went on...

Signed up yesterday. Pretty eclectic taste. Grew up on Elvis.Costello, Talking Heads, Violent Femmes . . . Now as a somewhat oldster (57), some of my favorites are Juana Molina, Willie Nelson ( I’ve binged pretty hard on old school country during the past crazy year), Yo La Tengo, Califone, Nicolas Jaar, Melanie De Biasio, Miles Davis (especially mid to late 60’s), Calexico, and Iron & Wine. Live in a pretty damn good live music town (pre-pandemic), Portland, OR, and go (went) to shows pretty regularly.
