Keith sat down with respected record collector Marsellus Wallace and the conversation went so long we decided to break the episode into two episodes - this is Part two.

This interview follows a slightly different format - Keith hit record, Marsellus threw on some records and the conversation went from there. In Part Two, Marsellus tells a story about a record from New Jersey, the spiritual connection with records and his favorite find.

Check out this Fall mix by Vinyl Exam writer, Matt Scott. Here is a note from him:

Since November 8 I've found my appetite for music has been different than usual, as I'm guessing it has for a lot of people. I've been seeking comfort in mellower sounds. Every year I make a fall mix for friends that's usually just full of my favorite tunes of the moment, but this one is different - it's shorter and it's got a moodier feel. The opening track is a gospel number, and there's a lonely country ballad a few tracks later, and many of the songs are in minor keys or have string sections. But I couldn't help but throw in some tasty funk as well - special mention goes to the second track, Blackrock "Yeah Yeah" from 1971, which must be one of the most joyous, endlessly relistenable funk instrumentals out there.

This episode is part two of a two part conversation with Wayne from the podcast Vinyl Miners. Keith and Sama sit down with Wayne to discuss records, collecting and ask "how far would you go?" to find records.

Here's a note from Wayne and Matt on the podcast:

The Vinyl Miners podcast and site is a space for a few vinyl fanatics to share and discuss records. We are not professionals or experts; we are merely a few avid record hunters who would like to share some of the material we discover. Hopefully you find something of interest.

The goal for the show is to provide a few quick cuts from records we feel are interesting, in an attempt to recreate the mood of sitting in a friends living room taking turns dropping the needle on your favorite tracks. The plan is to publish episodes twice a month, when life does not sidetrack us.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
