Last Collector Standing: Behind the scenes with Jon Scorfina

If you haven't visited the ATV Facebook page, you might not be aware of the links that I've been posting on occasion for Last Collector Standing, the wonderful vinyl-centric weekly feature in which Jon Scorfina of the Riverfront Times explores a different collector, digging into their vinyl collecting obsessions, the origins of their collecting habit, and most importantly, their collection!  If you're not reading this, you really need to hit this link and catch up.

One of my favorites in the series so far is Scorfina's two part conversation with Rhea Frankel and Roy DeRousse - a couple who met and bonded over their mutual love for Yes.

Scorfina is thirteen weeks into what he hopes will be at least a year long series, and I give him credit for managing to dig up a new and different character each week.  Appropriately, Thomas Crone (himself featured in a previous installment of the series) decided to turn the tables and feature Scorfina in his own video interview to find out more about the method behind the madness of Last Collector Standing.

An interesting snip from the interview - Scorfina says that he hopes the series "will encourage people to go out and pick up a record and experience what that's like."   As Scorfina shares, dipping your toe into the vinyl experience exposes the current generation of MP3 downloaders to a new way of experiencing music via an album that you can actually hold in your hands - something that was common for most music fans for many years, and yet for many of today's music fans, it's an unfamiliar experience.
