School of Electronic Moby Dicks

This may seem an odd poem. I was asked to do it for my degree. We took our degree guide, which has information, critical text and poems in it. I took a line from different pages starting from the cover and working through. In other words, these words are the words of others!

My stereos - a history

My Stereo(s) (Hi-fi) The rise and fall and rise again. A History of my stereo endeavours.

Part 1 - from a radio to the Pioneer

Part 1 | Part 2 | My stereo in June 2015
