Well, I plugged in my new Numark TTUSB turntable and made my first vinyl to mp3 conversion today! And it only took me three hours! It's the A-side of Air Miami's Airplane Rider 7" (Teenbeat 147) which was released in 1994 on Teenbeat Records. It's a pretty harmless little jangle pop song, assuming you don't have a fear of flying. My copy is on clear vinyl. Air Miami is one of several bands fronted by Teanbeat's intrepid CEO Mark Robinson; some of his other bands include Unrest, Flin Flon, and Grenadine. I have some Unrest and Grenadine 7"s which I may post one day, if I don't flag of the blog (this is my first blog and first post ever). The B-side of this 45, Stop Sign, is a bit of a throwaway in my view, so I'm not going to convert it now. There are records I'm more excited about converting and sharing with you, whoever you are.
