Never Records… the Reclaimed Soul Interview cut on wax.

Fresh from New Orleans, it’s my interview with Ted Riederer…. that he cut by hand on clear wax. It’s the first Reclaimed Soul interview that was played directly from a real record to play on the radio show!

Ted Riederer is a New York based artist who is in New Orleans running a pop-up record store this month called Never Records. Never Records is outfitted with recording equipment and his record cutting machine (or lathe), and he is recording local artists for free this month. Only two copies of the sessions are committed to wax: one copy for the artists and one for Never Records.

 

Listen to fresh episodes of Reclaimed Soul Thursdays at 8pm CST on vocalo.org!


The Turntable goes Minimalist

The little guy pictured above is a Linos Portable USB vinyl record player (never would have guessed it). How does it work, you ask?

 

Hook the wire into your computer. The bar has two parts. Take out the bottom base, place the long play album or single on top, and then sandwich it with the overarching top. To start playing, move the player arm into position. Bananas, right? Pop it in your pocket and you’re good to go (so long as you have a computer or something that accepts a USB cord handy). 

Probably not the best option for that $200 impossibly rare mint copy, but cool beans for that $1.99 joint.  Definitely a fun choice for a beginning collector.
