The Record’s Core Elements: 

The Record has evolved into a blog favoring rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia, especially from the sixties and seventies.
You will also find articles about politics (emphasizing social justice) and the media.
There is a smattering of reminiscences, mostly the editor’s, of cultural milestones that would be of interest to readers of a certain age.

About the Editor:

Journalism was supposed to be Andrew Goutman’s life’s work, but then he got a little sidetracked. With political activism providing the background music, Andy’s varied career paths in teaching and the law have come full circle with the creation of this blog of commentary on politics, the media and rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia. Andrew Goutman has come back to pursue his life’s calling…an all-consuming passion that has to be settled up.

Andy Goutman lives in South Philadelphia. He can be reached at goutandy@hotmail.com. You can also use the contact form in the space below.
