We had our very first Vinyl Night last night, with members bringing some of their treasured records to share with others. It was great fun. Lots of music. Even more chatting! Lovely cups of tea. Fab biscuits! We even had a bit of live music from William!
Here's some of the things we learned!
1. Music evokes very powerful memories. We had memories of aunts mimicking singers at parties, the excitement of getting your first Black Box, your first Dansette, First Single and even your first colour tele!
2. The Who's My Generation is 50 years old this year. Amazing that they are still playing, and even headlining Glastonbury this year.
3. Our Members have some amazing stories to tell. So many stories. We had stories of childhood in the blitz, growing up in the sixties and life moving from beige to full colour. Moves to Australia and then coming back to live on the very road you grew up on 30 years later! And lots more besides.
4. There really are Six Degrees of Separation. People found links to each other they didn't know existed! We had members realise they had a number of people in common in their lives. Wonderful stuff.
Why don't you join us next time?
