NOTE: This is an archive of a blog I originally published at Audiolicious.tv.
I have never been able to--and I suspect I never will--understand how some people don't like music. It is an absolutely alien concept to me. I can't imagine living without music.
Music is a part of my life every day and has been a passion of mine since I can remember. One of the best things about music is discovering new music and sharing the music you love with others.
And that. simply, is the point of Audiolicious.tv: Sharing.
I've been sharing the music I love with people in one form or another since I was a kid, be it vinyl, 8-track or cassette tapes, CDs, and now MP3 files and streams.
I've been sharing music with people online for the past fifteen or so years through various channels but I've never used one central location as that channel. Until now.
My name is David Erickson and this is my music blog.
This is about the music I like. If you like it too, great, stick around.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy!
