Meet David Read, one of the characters featured in this week’s Extended Play Podcast .
David’s life has revolved around the vinyl record since as long as he can remember; he’s been a collector forever, landed his first job at a record store in a local mall, done retail, distribution, management, marketing – and any other job you can think of that relates to the format.
In 2005, David started Vinyl Record Guru, a company that has grown so successful, it now produces hundreds of thousands of records per year for clients all over North America.
I travelled to the small city of Nanaimo to sit down with the guru and gain a glimpse into a life that’s been built on the foundations of an undying love for those ageless discs of wax.
An audio discussion between some industry heavyweights about why we should care about good sound. Talkers include Michael Fremer and Greg Calbi. Warning : Its 2.5 hours long!!
