Interested in participating? If you have thoughts about vinyl, its history, or its current place in American culture, we’re interested in hearing from you. If you collect vinyl, press to vinyl, or sell vinyl, we’d love to hear about your experiences. Please go to and fill out the appropriate form under the “Submit” tab. Previously published or original material of any length is welcome. Posts between 500 and 2500 words are particularly appropriate. We also welcome photographic essays, multi-media presentations, podcasts or videos. In compiling reflections on vinyl that are diverse in kind as well as content, we hope to create a snapshot of the history of vinyl and, at the same time, build a community of participants that will bridge academic divides and invite a broader cultural view of music and record collecting.

If you’re not interested in contributing a piece of your own, you can still participate. Each piece on the American History Now website can be ranked, and the curators are eager to hear your feedback more directly. Read along and let us know what you think!

    Hello. I see that you don’t update your website too often. I know that writing articles is boring and time consuming.
    But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to
    create new posts using existing content (from article directories or other blogs from
    your niche)? And it does it very well. The new articles are high quality and pass the copyscape
    test. You should try miftolo’s tools

    Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?

    I have a blog based on the same topics you
    discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I
    know my subscribers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel
    free to send me an email.
