On Monday, fellow Radio Survivor Matthew Lasar and I were guests on the Gramophoney Baloney radio show at community radio station KPOO-FM in San Francisco. Matthew has written numerous times about his love for this radio show and he’s even followed its host DJ Schmormac from station to station.
Although I didn’t know too much about the program, I thoroughly enjoyed it and was impressed by the wide array of vintage recordings that Schmormac has found. With an emphasis on old-time music from all over the world, the Gramophoney Baloney show had many unexpected surprises, including a live performance this week by a local duo and a phone interview from a prominent vintage music collector. To top it off, Matthew and I were called upon to hum a patriotic song. You can read more about our visit on Spinning Indie, where I’ve chronicled more than 50 radio station visits so far.
