The Hi-Fi Is Alive

Before my younger brother was born, his bedroom served as my Dad's stereo room. He had his turntable, tuner, open-reel tape deck, cassette deck and records stacked up on at least two levels of wood, supported by bricks on the end -- as was tradition in the 1970's.

A mix of your servant's favourite music
and moves, set to stories and observations.

The above song by Gary Wright is one I remember him playing when he was showing off the system. He also liked to throw on Linda Ronstadt's Heart Like A Wheel LP every so often.

Downstairs, meanwhile, the Queen Mother would do housecleaning to the soundtrack from The Godfather Part II on the giant Zenith console. That was if Andy Williams wasn't playing from one of at least a dozen of his albums.
