Wayne Goins, university distinguished professor of music, published "Celebrating Delbert McClinton: Keep Doin' What You Do," in Issue 116 of the internationally distributed audiophile magazine Positive Feedback. 

The article was an extensive research study on the musical career of Grammy-winning artist Delbert McClinton. More specifically, Goins chronicles McClinton's last two albums that won consecutive awards in 2017 and 2019 and led to a highly-acclaimed biography recently published by Diana Finlay Hendricks. In what represents a comprehensive series of in-depth articles, Goins offers both historical and theoretical analyses of the audio content in both vinyl and CD formats, as he releases each publication in chronological order.

Goins, who serves on the board of directors to the magazine, has published several articles as a contributing feature columnist. Goins regularly combines intense music research with in-depth details of his use of mono, stereo, and high-end digital equipment for playback of his extensive music collection in 45s, LPs and CD format.
