Episode 19: Cameron Schaefer of Vinyl Me, Please
Vinyl Me, Please has been supplying record lovers with exclusive album presses each month -- whether they be well-known classics, brand new releases or long-buried gems -- since January 2013 as a subscription-based service. Today, VMP's head of label relations Cameron Schaefer and I discuss their growth over the last three years, the feedback they get from their subscribers, how each Album of the Month is chosen and what it was like to hold the original UK master tapes of The Beatles' "Abbey Road," when he visited Capitol Records' extensive archives! We also discuss his youth in rural Wyoming and his career as a pilot in the Air Force prior to joining VMP.
