Neighbor Corey Bloom lives on Bonview, and he has organized a very cool event that will take place at the Bernal Heights Library tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 24, from 7 pm – 8 pm.
Neighbor Corey tells us all about it:
I’m putting together an event at the Bernal Library on 9/24. Called Phonographic Memory, the goal is to bridge the generations of the neighborhood through music (specifically, on vinyl). In short, guests will be chosen ahead of time to present a record of their choice, tell a personal story about their connection to the record, and then play a song from it.
Brilliant! Apparently, will be part of a new series at the Bernal Library:
Bridging generations and genres, Phonographic Memory is an exchange of recollections through records. Guests will be given eight minutes to present a record: share a personal story or memory about a song or the record itself, and then play a song from that album. This program will be held the last Wednesday of every month.
To register, please email PhonoGraphicMemory33@Gmail.com. Please include your full name, age, what record and song you will be presenting and a brief summary of your story.
