Richard Tussey and Alan Carell, two of the collectors featured in this week's Riverfront Times feature "Hold the Phono," have more than a quarter of a million 78 records between them. Their dream is to share them all with you -- in a public archive.

In this RFT video, Tussey and Carell introduce some of their favorite records and explain why it's so important that their collection, in all its magnitude, be preserved.

Tussey has so many records, he keeps some on the ceiling. He calls it his Sistine Chapel.
