About Me

I am Donald, owner of Oldies45s.com. I have been collecting 45s since my early teens in the 1970s, when my parents bought me a portable record player.

Now it’s not uncommon to find me digging through stacks of records at flea markets on weekends with my two sons in tow.

Among our favorites are artists like The Beatles and The Kinks and genres like rock and folk-rock (sometimes we even find disco gems!). We set up our website in 2018 to share our passion for these old records with other collectors and music lovers around the world!

We are a fun, family oriented site with a very small staff that we all work very hard to run. Our goal is to give you the best service and selection of 45s. In addition to 45s, I try to add reviews of other notable albums I enjoy along with some tips on playing and getting your system setup.

Outside of record collecting, my family and I enjoy gardening, travel and a few other hobbies here and there. I have tried over the years to learn guitar to make some of my own music but I must admit that even after years of trying, I am still not the best. Perhaps that’s what keeps me coming back to 45s instead!

Happy record collecting to all, and thank you for visiting.

Donald – Owner, Oldies45s.com
