Of course, he'll like it even more if you occasionally go ride the neighborhood with him. Let us know how it turns out.
Riding with him, and just getting him out of the house a little more is certainly part of the plan. I have friends who are into records from the mid-sixties and they've bonded with him over his hi-fi and jazz since he moved into town a few years ago. No one will tell me the whole story, but the old man went with them to a "gentleman's club" and they got thrown out. I don't want that kind of fire to die out.
