While at the School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago, I was introduced to the addictive world of 45 RPM record collecting by an instructor who dubbed me Angel Baby after my favorite record. Under this name I presently host two Internet-radio shows: Lost In Paradise and Between The Sheets. Since being on the air, I’ve amassed an ever-growing collection of original 45s in all genres from the 1950s and 60s and have built up an International listenership. Check out my podcast page lostinparadise.podomatic.com for archives of these shows.

Hello from the south coast of England, UK. It's my first time listening to your podcast and i'm absolutely loving it! I was wondering if you might have the time to share with us your top tips for record buying. I'm the kinda guy who pays over the odds for a record i've never heard of based upon the sleeve or title alone only to stick it on the turntable and hear what sounds like nothing more than a dying reindeer in a blizzard. Honestly, I think I have a mental deficiency and urgently need somebody to state the obvious for me! Much love, yours faithfully... Gareth Brown
