Phonographic Memory is a storytelling project dedicated to examining and celebrating the human experience as framed by vinyl records. Each month, people share a personal story about a specific record, and then play a song from it on our turntable. This bi-monthly podcast highlights some of our favorite stories and songs along with in-depth interviews with DJs and record collectors.

Something interesting and new!!
Great podcast bringing you to the place where vinyl records and the specific memories associated with them intersect! Highly recommended!!

Captivating stories intertwined with the music leading them
I've always been one of those people that like to people watch and observe and try to figure out relationships and their ties with all the things around everyone. This is a great combination of the relationships between the story tellers souls and the music/songs that speak to them and why. Great range of personalities and stories tied with the universal language of music. I love listening to these and can't wait for more.
