A massive country music collection

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The sounds of time gone by -- classic country music echoes through the home of Roy Bodden and his wife. They have just about any album you can imagine. Roy has been collecting them since he was 14, and he has quite a few.

"4,700 plus," he says.

Roy has loved country music since he was a little boy in the Cayman Islands.

"Country music is like home music in the Cayman Islands, and you will find that they're in fact the only group of islands in the Caribbean with a 24 hour a day country music station," he said.

Roy has been around music all his life, working at WMNF radio for 13 years.

"I didn't just play the music, but I talked about it, I talk about the artist, I talked about the time, I talked about why the song might have come about to have been written," he says.

Through the years, Roy even performed with Ernie Lee on Pulse 13 days.

"I can't forget Ernie Lee," he said.

And as you look through the thousands and thousands of albums, you'll find all kinds of treasures -- even an album of my family, my mom, uncle and aunt.

Roy knows their songs well -- really he knows every song well from this era, and if he has any say, it's a time and music that will never be forgotten.
