Hey there! My name is Matt Wooldridge, and I’m very excited to be the founder of Vinyl Destination! I’m 24 years old, and have been collecting vinyl for about 8 years, but didn’t actually get my first turntable until 2011 (ya, I know). I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a Bachelor of Arts in 2015. I currently live in Florida, and my local shop of choice is Park Ave CDs (but I only buy vinyl there). Discogs tells me I currently have over 500 records in my collection, including 45’s and full LP’s. My collection consists of records from 1957 – present, and a very wide variety of genres. I tend to collect releases from specific labels more seriously, such as: Third Man Records, Daptone Records and Italians Do It Better. I also love buying individual releases from artists I’m into, as well as discovering artists I’ve never heard of. I’m a sucker for a cool variant of a record. My favorite days of the year are Record Store Day, and Record Store Day Black Friday.
