The Ledge #512: Drop That Needle

Bring a thimble and I’ll pour my thoughts out – Paul Westerberg, “How Can You Like Him?”

Given that the tune celebrates one of my favorite passions, playing records, it seemed natrual to create a show dedicated to my favorite physical format. So tonight’s broadcast is all about records, and not just the format itself. There are tunes about record stores, record thieves, record collectors, turntables, needles. 
I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these tunes on The Ledge! Let them know who is giving them promotion! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher…or
