Alliance Vinyl Club to Welcome Guest in January

The Alliance Vinyl Club will welcome special guest Bob Ethington during its January meeting at Rodman Public Library.Bob Ethington

Ethington had been scheduled to join the group in November, but his visit was Jan. 26 due to a scheduling conflict. The Alliance Vinyl Club, which provides the opportunity to listen to music, talk and hang out,  usually meets at 6:30 p.m. every third Wednesday of the month in the RPL Main Auditorium. January’s meeting is being held on the fourth Wednesday in order to accommodate Ethington’s schedule.

Ethington, a musician who recently retired after 35 years as a library manager for the Akron-Summit County Public Library, will play some of his favorite records and give an informal talk about his experiences, which include stints in several bands. In the 1980s, Ethington was the drummer for Unit 5, a new wave band, and later played with Ralph Carney, Tin Huey, Kinski Spiral, and Half Cleveland. He currently plays in Golems of the Red Planet, Pin 2 Hot, and Glenn Lazear.

Visitors are also welcome to bring a few of their own favorite records. Due to time limitations, only a few selections per person will be played. A turntable will be provided, but we ask that you handle your personal records and assume any liability for normal wear and scratches.

 No registration is required. For more information, call the Main Library at 330-821-2665, ext. 216.
