About

Who could have predicted it was the Sex Pistols who inspired Duran Duran's John Taylor to pick up an instrument?
Or that watching Elton John inspired Zakk Wilde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne) to become a musician?
Are you tired of music recommended by algorithms and wish to find something surprising and new?

If you'd been watching Records In My Life you'd know the answer to questions like these and much more.

Records In My Life (RIML) is the music "love" project of Charles Brownstein and Mark Roland Henning. Its premise is simple: we ask recording artists about the albums they love. Unfiltered, fresh and often unanticipated, RIML provides a unique way to discover new music. New episodes drop every Monday.

This show started with just an idea, a camera and a microphone, and has now grown to a weekly YouTube series that has produced nearly 200 interviews to date. Each year, Records In My Life has evolved; the guests have gained more attention through the interviews and the range of music being discussed has expanded impressively. We love making the show and that's why we have decided to partner with you through Patreon.

For the past three years we have created this series almost entirely on our own. We are seeking assistance so we can continue to interview brilliant artists, upgrade our equipment such as our cameras etc., and eventually plan to take the show on the road. It is our intention to expand our crew with additional camera operators and editors as well. Your help would go a long way ensuring that this will happen.

Who we are:
Mark Roland Henning is a musician, producer, engineer, video editor and camera operator. Video came much later in life but his long career in music paved the way for his role as director and editor of Records In My Life. Having once been in a touring band in the 1990's (Canadian alt rock band, Pure), he knew well the discomfort of being interviewed on camera. That is why even from the very rustic beginnings of RIML there is a flow and ease to the interviews. Henning believes the guests comfort is essential to produce a great interview, and that is something he and Brownstein both provide. In addition to editing the series, Henning's current musical project, Combine the Victorious, has provided the theme music.

Charles Brownstein
runs the music blog NorthernTransmissions.com in addition to producing and hosting Records In My Life. Initially RIML was a special feature for northerntransmissions, until the series took on a shape of its own. Brownstein's love and knowledge of music, from widely varied genres and eras, has fuelled his desire to create the show. Both he and Henning value the experinece they have gained from the hundreds of musicians they've spoken with over the past few years.
Goals
$85.14 of $1,000 per month
It is our intention to purchase new equipment such as 4K capable cameras, a new computer for editing, lights and stands, lavalier microphones and other equipment. The money would go directly into the acquisition of such gear.
Additionally the fund will help us afford to continue to create Records In My Life for the next season.
