Episode 15: Live from Record Store Day / Ben and Chris from flipbin

275 miles, 6 record stores and 2 states in 1 day. I made it my mission on Record Store Day 2016 to bring you a slew of interviews with vinyl collectors of all sorts in both Wisconsin and Illinois (fathers and daughters, aunts and nephews, couples, best friends and more) about their passion for records and what they wanted from this year's list of exclusive releases. Plus I chat with several record store owners about their prep for the big crowds and their love for their customers on the biggest music shopping day of the year! In Milwaukee, these chats took place at The Exclusive Company (Farwell Ave.), Rush-Mor Records, Off the Beaten Path and ACME Records & Music Emporium, plus there's audio from show-sponsor Pinwheel Records in Chicago as well as Rediscover Records in Elgin, IL. I also talk with Ben Robertson and Chris Baronner of flipbin, a new Chicago-made record display product whose Kickstarter campaign recently launched in order to help vinyl lovers better organize their "now playing" or "recently purchased" stacks of wax!
