Episode 111 – Original Upload 1.1.23

This playlist is 92% vinyl friendly. Near perfect. ‘OK, lads. Check out the grooves!‘ Any track marked * has been given either a tiny or a slightly larger 41 Rooms ‘tweak’/edit/chop and the occasional tune might sound a bit dodgy, quality-wise. On top of that, the switch between different decades and production values never helps […]

Episode 110 – Original Upload 4.12.22

This playlist is 83% vinyl friendly. Impressive. A Technics SP10MK3 NGS, courtesy of Artisan Fidelity. I can’t work out whether this was the idea of someone with a single hob cooker set up or (at the other end of the scale) maybe some four wheels transport, in the form of a top of the range […]

Episode 109 – Original Upload 6.11.22

This playlist is 77% vinyl friendly. Not bad. Holger Trass’s thing (http://analogue-classics.com) is repositioning vintage analogue turntables in all manor of set ups. This ancient Garrard 301 (1950s?) deck might sound better than it looks, even if it doesn’t feel as good… as it looks… errr, seeing as it’s not in fact a marble plinth. […]

Episode 108 – Original Upload 2.10.22

This playlist is 81% vinyl friendly. Not bad. Fancy taking the car for a spin? Nothing more than a goddam novelty I’m surprised I haven’t included this Stokyo Record Runner (hijacking a Volkawagon van) here before. I think they missed a trick though, as it’s the fully windowed ‘hippy’ fave version of the van that […]

Episode 106 – Original Upload 7.8.22

This playlist is 90% vinyl friendly. Impressive. ‘The Planet’ turntable. Put together in 2015 by a Lego loving lad named Hayarobi, using 2405 pieces, the only non-Lego part being the Audio-Technica 1Ea cartridge. He must like Swiss Rolls.

Episode 102 – 3.4.22

PLAYLIST 102 uploaded April 3, 2022 and it’s 73% vinyl friendly. Room for improvement. ๐Ÿ™‚ Was this design off the back of a vinyl record cleaning gizmo shaped likewise a few decades back? Dunno.
