The Vinyl Experience

I was lucky enough to get invited onto Paul Cavalonte's radio show at 101.9 WRXP this past Sunday to rep our shop. Paul was really genuine and his true love for all the things that come with the experience of listening to/playing/talking about records.
I've been a long time fan of another programmer on his station, Matt Pinfield, whose roots go back to my old stomping grounds of New Brunswick, NJ. I've always admired his knowledge and enthusiasm so I when I found out he'd be doing a show on RXP a couple years back, I tuned in regularly on my way to work. Getting a chance to meet Paul Cavalconte, who in an essence is a very similar wealth of record knowledge, was a real treat. Our conversations were healthy ones - from the "riverboat Reprise" labels on Hendrix's "Are You Experienced", to our mutual discontent with sound imperfections on the final tracks on either side of a 33 RPM Lp. I had a great time and look forward to future talks with a guy you should tune into a learn a little something from.
