Pass on this video and help save this amazing archive of music

Paul Mawhinney was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Over the years he has amassed what has become the world's largest record collection. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry Paul is being forced to sell his collection.

This is the story of a man and his records. I hope you enjoy it.

This comes from one of the commentors:

Being about the same age as Mr. Mawhinney, I can tell you that there is quite a bit of music from my younger years that is not available on CD or any format except vinyl. The first flat record came out in 1881 and CDs didn't come around until the early eighties. Some of the stuff from that first 100 years has been released on CD and MP3; but MOST of it hasn't been. Without a turntable, you ain't listening to it!
