TKR on YouTube – TC will be appearing on “Cocktails & Vinyl” Tonight!

Hi all! I will be guesting on my friend Adam’s vinyl series “Cocktails & Vinyl” this evening! This is an ongoing series where Adam welcomes guests from the Record Krate community in to talk about collecting. I will be joining two of my fellow collectors, Shawn D and Kurt Johnson, in the discussion – collectively, we are known as the “Darn Brothers”, a nickname given to us by another community member who noticed that on Adam’s regular live sales if we were interested in the same item, whomever didn’t make it in on time would usually exclaim “Darn it!” The

EUROVISION: It’s Dadi Freyr Day!

It’s EUROVISION DAY – well, it WOULD BE, if this year’s contest hadn’t been cancelled. But we’ll make it up to you – I’ve got lots of stuff today, and we’re kicking off today’s festivities with a special – it’s DADI FREYR DAY! Freyr won my top spot this year and by all accounts online (except for one or two partypooping deniers out there, heh heh) was on his way to winning ESC 2020 for his home country Iceland with his delightful little ditty “Think About Things“. SO….today, to kick things off, it’s time to give you some great Dadi-videos!
