Shades of Soul, Episodes 2.16 and 2.17

For episode 2.16, I had on author Amanda Petrusich, whose new book Do Not Sell At Any Price: The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for the World’s Rarest 78rpm Records is one of the best books on record collecting ever written. We had a great convo about her book, about the world of collecting, and she prepped four summer 78s for us to listen to. And on 2.17, I did an End of Summer show, kissing goodbye to the season with a mix of my favorite summer jams plus songs I’ve gotten cozy with the last few months.
