Music & Film
Music and film has always been a strong interest throughout my life.
I started buying 45 rpm singles and 33 rpm LP records at age
12. I tried unsuccessfully to learn to play the guitar
properly during my teenage years. I began tinkering with the
radios, stereo system etc. around the family home at an
early age and put together a low-end Hi-Fi system during my
During my 20s I worked part-time in a small 8-track
Melbourne studio as a recording engineer. I'm not a regular
movie theatre attendee, mostly seeing films via video tape,
and these days via DVD.

Today I have a reasonable collection of LPs, CDs and
DVDs, which is growing at a steady rate. The
CDs have been
converted to a 45+ Gb set of MP3 format files. And now I'm
looking at starting work on converting my LP records as well.
And before you even think of asking, none of my LPs, CDs
or DVDs are for sale, and I won't make copies of them for
