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!

vinyl records podcast with two great hosts!
Keith and Columbo host a cast with the perfect vibe and a great sound... Good for those long-time 45 collectors and those just now trying to get into it.
Great new show about vinyl collecting and the culture behind it. Not your usual take on subject but rather a really fresh perspective! Looking forward to episodes to come!
It's not just about the vinyl.
It's about the people and places, and the Vinyl, of course. Good work fellas.
