About smithonmusic

I've been writing since before I was old enough to drive and, happily, ended up making it my profession. Much of my work has encompassed covering the general business, leisure, and film and video production fields, and my efforts have gotten musical on more than a few occasions. After years of continued encouragement, direction and even threats from friends (yes, Allison, Andrea and Spence, I'm talking about you) about starting a music blog to share my/our experiences, it's finally a reality. I hope you'll join me (and sometimes my friends) in this musical stream of consciousness!

An unexpected trend: the expansion of vinyl music retail outlets, like The Sound Garden, Baltimore
