The Vinyl Exam is a weekly podcast about the vinyl record. New episodes released every Monday. Your hosts Keith Foster and Columbo Ahmed will take you through a tour of the not-so-dead vinyl record. Keith will cover all things LP while Columbo takes charge of the 45. We are going to talk to record collectors, aficionados, addicts, old heads, and young bucks. In the podcast, we'll also have exclusive mixes, found sound, album reviews, and short-form radio stories. It's gonna be a trip!
