    I moved to Iowa City in 1992. My older brother went to U of I in1980-1985. Stereo stores I had been to were Audio Odyssey, Electronics Cave, and Hawkeye Audio. The Record Collector is still around.

    I am spending a few months in Baltimore this fall. We should hit the record stores together sometime.

    My current favorites are True Vine and Strawberry Fields in Hampden and Normals over on Greenmount.

    Yeah, that would be cool. Are you here for school?

    In a way. My wife is teaching at Hopkins and I am on sabbatical.

    The Record Collector is an amazing success story. I know the owner slightly. He started the store as just a few crates of records in the corner of someone else's book store. He told me he put every dollar he earned back into his store until he could finally rent his own place, and he said that because of that practice, he has never had to take out a business loan.

    If she's on the main Hopkins university campus, she'll be working in a really pretty part of town. That area reminds me of Minneapolis in a way -- very green, well-preserved historic homes.

    Yes, we live on the northern edge of the campus in a neighborhood called Guilford. It's quite beautiful.
