Joey Altruda Presents: Vinyl Meltdown – ohhhhh!


I have just begun a weekly podcast connected to the Reserve website.
(Reserve is a retail store on Fairfax Ave in L.A., which represents all labels maunufactured under the FreshJive clothing company. It also specializes in books & magazines related to grapghic design, photography, and all things pop-cultural)

Every week Reserve will post up a new radio show called Vinyl Meltdown hosted by yours truly, spinning rare and esoteric music of different decades all the way back to the 1920s.

I will also be featuring occasional guests who will bring gems from their crate diggings for a bit of show & tell.

Each show will stay posted as an archive so you can re-listen any time you wish, or download the show as an MP3.

Copy & Paste This Link & Enjoy!
