Phonographic Memory is a storytelling project dedicated to examining and celebrating the human experience as framed by vinyl records. Each month, people share a personal story about a specific record, and then play a song from it to a live audience in San Francisco. This bi-monthly podcast highlights some of our favorite stories and songs along with in-depth interviews with DJs and record collectors.
When Eric Ball contacted Phonographic Memory, he mentioned that the particular record he wanted to share probably hadn’t been played in almost 40 years, and definitely not on American soil. We couldn’t wait to hear what was on it, and neither could he.
This story was recorded in front of our live audience at the Bernal Heights Public Library in San Francisco, March 25, 2015.
