Free lunchtime talk: About Vinyl Records And How To Collect Them

You are invited to a free Lunchtime Soapbox talk entitled:

About Vinyl Records And How To Collect Them by Naren Sewpaul

The first commercially–available vinyl record was launched in 1930 and it grew to become most popular from the 1950s to the 1990s. Still available today, vinyl records, arguably, are considered to be ‘collectable’ as opposed to music available in digital format.

Though digital technology has improved over the years,  some audiophiles still prefer what they perceive as the warmer and more detailed sound of vinyl over the harsher sound of CDs. Naren Sewpaul’s music library of books, magazines, records, audiocassettes, CDs, Videos and DVDs. includes a vast vinyl collection. Find out everything you wanted to know about vinyl records and how to collect them.

Naren Sewpaul lives in Cape Town. He is the director at Creative Futures Consulting. He is also an accomplished composer, writer, researcher and producer in the creative industries. His other interests include futures studies and collecting vinyl records and related memorabilia.
