My Music Listening Summary for the month of June 2019.
Albums- Listened to 208 albums for the month- a couple albums under a 7 a day average- for the year I have listened to 1284. The year is half over- 2500 for the year seems like a very do-able number. 55 albums I listened to in June were albums I hadn’t listened to before. On June 2nd I began listening to my vinyl collection with the goal of going through them all- of the 208 albums I listened to in June 111 were from my vinyl collection. Not sure how many vinyl albums I have but I think it is in the 900-1000 range. I am sorting them out as I listen to an album. I don’t know how they every got so out of order!
My goal of listening to 365 albums that were released in 1969- I fell behind in the second half of June- 181 days in the year I am at 166 albums- I need a couple days of heavy listening to 1969 and I will be caught up.
