This is The Vinyl Exam!
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!
The LP, short for "Long Play Record", is your tried and tested vinyl format for music. With it, you get a warm sound that you simply can't find elsewhere. In our podcast, Keith will dig deep into the minds of those who collect these records to find out what drives them.
What the hell is a 45? Columbo collects these little guys (they have a 7inch diameter compared to the 12inch LP) because, above all else, he loves individual songs. Singles. One hit wonders. And he's not alone. There's a lot of people out there who exclusively collect 45s and you will hear about every single one of them in our podcast.
Our plan is to release something new every Monday. Make sure you subscribe on iTunes. To help us grow the show, make sure to give us a rating or review! And find us on twitter @TheVinylExam - we would love to hear what you have to say.
