The greatest gift I ever received was an old Corona Light box from my grandfather. Confused and intrigued as to why I would be receiving this as a 15-year old girl, I was delighted to find that my grandpa was passing on his record collection to me. In the box I found original Beatles albums, … Continue reading “Countdown to Vinylthon 2018: Isabella Fierro”

It’s sweet and loud and playful and jangly, twirling through the daydream of finally connecting with the person at the show you’re crushing on.
