Welcome to Donald Clarke's

The snapshot above was taken about 1955 by my brother, David, who was standing on a chair. The record player was a Magnavox, the best available to me at the time, as I was not an engineer able to build my own, nor rich enough to buy custom-made gear. That's a Columbia LP playing... It might be CL 500, the very first Columbia 12" pop LP, a Benny Goodman compilation.

I have listened to a lot of records since then! There's too much
music and never enough time, but it has been an extraordinarily
rich journey. Please enjoy browsing in my work!
