Caleb Caudle,
The TVD First Date

“Vinyl, what a beautiful thing. Some of my favorite memories are attached to pulling a record out of the sleeve, putting it on the turntable, and dropping the needle. There’s a lot of ways to take in music these days, but there’s only one way to make you feel like you are in a different world.”

“The first time I remember buying a record was at a flea market when I was in 10th grade. I was mostly just there for the boiled peanuts, but I found myself combing through the bins at a stand that was about the size of your average walk-in closet. I came across a copy of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd. I bought it and left 10 dollars lighter.

I didn’t have a turntable at the time, so I rented one from my high school library. The librarian dusted it off and told me no one had rented one of these in a decade. I proudly took it home and dove right in. Spinning records became the most important thing to me right away.

A few months later I picked up a copy of London Calling by The Clash and everything changed. I had no idea what they were doing at the time but I knew it was special. I couldn’t put it down. I really didn’t want to listen to anything else for a long time.

It wasn’t until years later that I realized they were borrowing so much from other genres and that’s what truly made it great. Now I apply this to my own music, becoming borderline obsessed with getting every record from a genre before moving on to the next. It’s helped me in so many ways.

So thank you boiled peanuts, and thank you Johnny Cash, and thank you Joe Strummer for giving us The Clash.”
