Greetings my friends. My name is Gabe and similar to a few other "welcomes" that I've read here, I too have also recently discovered this amazing world of library music. I do thank you for allowing me to join, and yet while I'm still quite new to this area of music, I'm also very eager to learn about it. I can tell you my only experience thus far comes from a YouTube channel referencing a few themes from the Tim & Eric show. This may or may not have been a good thing.  :)

Many thanks to you all, Gabe.

Greta

Hello all. I just joined. I've got quite a broad taste in music and I'm particularly into Library at the moment, which I guess has a broad range of styles itself. I came across this board by accident and thought I would have a look round. Thanks for letting me in  :)

I'm interested in how newer members are getting into library music- share your tales.... :-)

It probably started around 10 years ago for me. I think I heard Justin Spear and Stuart Maconie playing and discussing it a few times on 6 music. I bought some compilation and reissue CDs, I went to see KPM All Stars perform live twice (I recorded one show - I should have it somewhere), I bought the Fuel book.

But then, for some unknown reason, my interest petered out.

Cut to last year when I found myself with time on my hands to listen to some music while I was working in the office. I listened to some old British Psych broadcasts on mixcloud and, when I ran out of them, I remembered someone had told me many years before about the OST Show on Resonance FM, so I started listening and was hooked again. Went through the three year archive three times. By this time I had relocated to Singapore and, for a tiny country, it has more than it's fair share of record shops but, when asking about library music, I was met with a blank look. Until I found a guy selling records in a disused factory unit. It turned out a large part of his stock came from broadcasting companies. Bingo! Several shelves packed with library records. The majority are De Wolfe but there are some other labels.

So, my library collection has started. Having said that, I'm not planning to collect as such, just buy the music I like and, if I buy anything I don't like, I will move it on.

And that's my story  :)
