I have been collecting what I call 'modern alternative' music since the early 80's when I was in high school, starting with new wave and branching from there to post punk, electronic, and tribal styles, encompassing many individual genres, some pop, some obscure.

In 1986 I started spinning on KSJS for a few years, doing regular shifts as well as the specialty shows Dark Waves (that year), Twilight Passages and Aluminum Gems, as well as subbing for Brad Stone occasionally on his electronic Silicon Sensations program. During my last year there I was music director for the weekday modern 'rock' format.

But that's all ancient history, now that I have a working schedule, however I have never stopped collecting discs, often buying things in the store just based on the label or a band member or some such connection, and have only seldom been dissappointed in the chances I took. Indeed, some of my favorite gems were discovered that way, or through compilations. Most of the collection is imports, a quirk I developed in the vinyl days when the quality mattered, and also because typically the original releases were European for most of the artists I was interested in.

I do not buy, sell, or trade files, and if I ever decide to sell items from the collection, they'll be posted.
