Richard Elcock –” Billy T” – Director / Lifetime Member - Past President (2007-2011)

Richard “Billy T” Elcock has been a part of the VRCA since inception. He became the first President in 2007 and served until 2011. His no-nonsense leadership style charted a course for VRCA, which led it to becoming a registered entity.

VRCA has benefitted from Billy’s experience as an experienced event promoter and he has played an integral role in organizing successful events primarily those held in Florida, as well as in other chapters.

A senior collector Billy has travelled far and wide to build his enviable vinyl collection and he credits Michael Barnett of KOOL FM for opening his eyes to a world of rare records, setting the stage for him becoming a serious collector.  Billy takes pleasure in showcasing his collection on collectorskornernow.com (CKN) on the Vintage Vinyl program along with his co-hosts Eric “Junior” Cyrus, Winston Hart and Clayton Young.

His firm dedication to our organization, unquestionable status as a senior vinyl record collector was recognized by VRCA at the “MWE 2013 Sit In” in Atlanta when he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Reginald “Winston” Hart. Director /Lifetime Member

A man of very few words, Winston is a senior heavyweight vinyl collector. A music lover since his high school days at Kingston College where he was a member of a singing group known as the Deltas.  The recorded music being played by Billy’s Hometown Hi-Fi in Jamaica in the 60’s made an indelible impression on him and was his initial motivation to start collecting vinyl records.  After migrating he met the late Spencer Tracy, whom Winston declares was the main influence to him as a collector. His constant appetite for new discoveries has led him on many record expeditions to find rare gems throughout the North American continent.  Another one of our members who has been on board since our first event in 1998, he is also one of the co-hosts of the Vintage Vinyl show on collectorskornernow.com network.

Winston is always prepared to put in the work for the good of the VRCA, a willing and ready volunteer. He was a recipient of VRCA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.
