for the love of vinyl
A great podcast for lovers of the crate-digging experience. Patrick takes a chance on those unknown dollar bin oddities, and more often than not it pays off—either in seriously great tunes or hilarious awfulness. None of this is mean-spirited, nor is it done for the sake of irony or hipster cool. Like a true vinyl lover, Patrick takes the time to read through the jacket and liner notes, letting the listener in on one of the best aspects of physical music. He also throws in a review of each local record store he visits, which provides a nice window into his home city of Philadelphia. If you love records, check out COTRIG!
Check out COTRIG!
Excellent podcast. Informative and very funny. If you're a music nerd or a fan of vinyl, I can promise you that this show will introduce/expose you to wonders you never knew were ever pressed into vinyl, intended to be spun at 33 1/3. Listen. Learn. Laugh.
