Bring on the nostalgia, because today is Vinyl Record Day! August 12, 2011 is the 134th anniversary of Thomas Edison inventing the phonograph, and the 9th annual celebration of the vinyl record and its cover art. This special day was started by Gary Freiberg in hopes of raising awareness of the importance of preserving vinyl records.
I'm glad there's such a day, since I have hundreds of records that just sit idly on my shelf. Now I realize that just to have them is a good thing because they are being saved for some greater purpose. I really do appreciate them, even if they're just taking up space. There are so many old memories that I associate with them; all those vinyl record albums are like old friends to me. Sometimes I can remember exactly what I was doing years ago when I listened to a new record for the first time. Today I can play some vinyl on my old Wildcat record player and instantly go back in time. Each album has a a story.
Nostalgic candy has a story as well, and that's why I love being in the candy memory business. Old time candy can take you back in time just like old vinyl records can. There's something special about certain smells, tastes, and sounds that can instantly transport you back to your younger days.
So, to honor Vinyl Record Day, get out your record player, put on your favorite record album, sit back with some nostalgic candy and enjoy a trip down memory lane!
