In episode 9 we continue our Confessions of a Vinyl Addict series. Producer Dana Berry interviews Mike LaVella, a life-long record collector who also worked within the music industry as a writer for Maximum Rock n Roll and Thrasher, published the garage punk/hot rod magazine Gearhead and ran Gearhead Records.

Mike now runs a ‘Now Playing’ vinyl spinning night in the Bay Area. Take a journey with Mike as he recounts the plot points of a life consumed and buoyed by vinyl records.

We also begin a new segment of the show where we visit independent record stores across the country and conduct short interviews. Dave begins at home with Sacramento’s Delta Breeze.
