Saturday, April 19, 2014 - 1:00pm
Join a light-hearted discussion on the crazy world of vinyl—buying it, selling it, creating it, and that idiosyncratic slice of humanity known as the record collector—inside the interactive exhibition Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records. Grammy-nominated reissue producer, writer, and archivist Alec Palao will play and talk about records from his collection. His guests: collector and record dealer Barry Wickham, an authority on garage rock and owner of one of the most extensive 45 collections in the world, and Mike Schulman, deejay, collector, and owner of respected local indie label Slumberland Records.

Talk and Play, a program series in Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records, features guest participants from DJs to music journalists, record collectors to experimental musicians. With something different every week, you might find yourself swapping albums with collectors, learning from an expert about the mechanics of pressing an album, or listening to a specially curated music set.

Included with Museum admission. Admission for Members is always free.
