Welcome to our Resource Links page. Here you will find websites that offer resources for areas covering music and information related to collecting vinyl records and all things retro.
I also add sites that I believe would be of interest and a benefit to my visitors.
I have selected some of my favorite vinyl record related links to help you find the best resources for your Vinyl Record collecting journey.
While Vinyl Record Memories is not directly involved with all of these sites, I do have a music association with some sites listed.
I have personally checked into each of them and believe you will find them useful.
The "Home of Rock 'n' Roll Music Roots." A large rockabilly site, featuring information on over 5000 artists, news, feature columns, show dates, talent profiles, links, photo scrapbook, and its own CD label. We embrace all types of early rock 'n' roll, whether it's called rockabilly, hillbilly boogie, or something else. Our purpose, for over 20 years, is to give recognition to the pioneers of this music genre.
Listen to my favorite Country Doo-Wop show Monday thru Saturday from 1pm to 3pm, all times Pacific.

Congratulations on an outstanding site. I am from old school. I was 13 when Rock & Roll erupted in 1955. I would literally run home from school to watch Bandstand every day. I lived outside Philly and grew up with all the Philadelphia music scene and its performers. Keep up the good work and I thank you for your time and effort in keeping the old vinyl music alive for us and future generations.

Rest easy my friend.
