Hi, Lou, Thanks so much for the kind words, but I wouldn't want anyone to think that I actually DO grooved media. I focus on tape and tape only. (I do LPs and 45s from my own collection for iPodding for my family and me, but that's it). There are many people on this list who are experts on grooved media. I'm afraid to name any in that I'd omit someone, but the people that come to mind who are professionally restoring grooved media and who replied to this question are, in alphabetical order: George Brock-Nannestad Parker Dinkens Tom Fine Eric Jacobs David Lennick Graham Newton Doug Pomeroy Will Prentice Joe Salerno Art Shifrin Paul Turney I guess you can say, I'm not groovy. Oh well. Thanks again for the kind words. Cheers, Richard At 11:05 PM 2010-05-18, Lou Judson wrote: >Lisa, I'm a minor player in this game, but happy to share whatever I >can.
