The Alliance Vinyl Club will welcome special guest Bob Ethington during its November meeting at Rodman Public Library.

Ethington, a musician who recently retired after 35 years as a library manager for the Akron Public Library, will play some of his favorite records and give an informal talk about his experiences, which include stints in several bands. In the 1980s, Ethington was the drummer for Unit 5, a new wave band, and later played with Ralph Carney, Tin Huey, Kinski Spiral, and Half Cleveland. He currently plays in Golems of the Red Planet, Pin 2 Hot, and Glenn Lazear.

The Alliance Vinyl Club, which meets every third Wednesday of the month, will gather at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 17 in the RPL Main Auditorium to visit with Ethington.

Visitors are also welcome to bring a few of their own favorite records. Due to time limitations, only a few selections per person will be played. A turntable will be provided, but we ask that you handle your personal records and assume any liability for normal wear and scratches.

Alliance Vinyl Club provides the opportunity to listen to music, talk and hang out. No registration is required. For more information, call the Main Library at 330-821-2665, ext. 216.
