None other than Gary Gebler, owner of Baltimore, Maryland’s premiere vinyl shop, Trax on Wax, has become an instant fan of Needle Meets Vinyl.

Gary says: “As soon as the needle drops on the record and you hear that warm crackle, you know this is something special. Nothing takes you back to this special place like hearing your favorite songs by the Beatles, the Smiths, Dylan and the Stones to name a few on glorious vinyl. Needle Meets Vinyl is one bad-ass program and gets two thumbs up from Trax on Wax.”

Your Host, Brian Bringelson

A member of the glorious pop band, Anchor and Bear, who releases solo records under the name Paul Starling (his latest, The Wild Wolf, is currently playing in rotation on Pure Pop Radio), Brian Bringelson has a golden ear that’s tuned into the great and melodic music of today and yesterday. He’s also got an inviting, easygoing deejay style, which we know you’re going to fall in love with. And, for vinyl aficionados everywhere, this is going to be your weekly meeting place: Every song heard on Needle Meets Vinyl is played from records. Nice, right?

In between, Brian spins tunes from the likes of Bob Dylan, the James Gang, Barbara Lynn, Joan Baez and, of course, the Beach Boys and the Beatles, and relates cool facts and figures about them.
