I love progressive rock , Psychedelic ,& hair metal . Also older stuff from 1950's onward - the early 1990's is good, Blues, soul, big band, classical, ska, punk, disco, most rock, and some country. I used to work in the vending business as a Jukebox man and have many insights to offer into vinyl and record player maintenance and history
