They say you can’t sell music as a product anymore. Nobody wants CDs. Download sales are tanking as streaming grows in popularity. People don’t have the attention span to listen to a whole album, we’re in singles world now. Cherry pick my favorites, put them in a playlist, hits of the 90’s, workout jams, I don’t need artwork, I don’t want to know who played on the record, or who wrote the songs. Shuffle it up and fire it into my head like musical Pez, one sweet little brick at a time. Zero footprint. That’s what they say.
But what about the resurgence of vinyl?
Our guest on the show today is Cameron Schaefer from Vinyl Me Please, a record club that is all about bringing vinyl to their members that will transport them into the present moment and delight them.
