On episode #15 of the podcast, we delve into a great conversation with Jon Howard who manages the East Lansing, Michigan record shop Flat, Black & Circular. This is the store where Matt first began his lengthy (and expensive) journey of record buying. The chat covers hipsters, Record Store Day, the affect of the online market and how the business has changed - and sometimes stayed the same - in the 30 years Jon has been working at the shop.
In addition to the interview, there is a bunch of news to cover this week too. Matt runs down some of the week's vinyl and reissue announcements along with a look at a dozen records coming in 2017 that we're amped up about. There is a lot to chew on here. So, let's get cracking.
