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.
In this episode, Max Sidman shares a record and a story which reminds us that a generation that grows up on records, births a generation that grows up around records. Records have the power to become family heirlooms in the truest sense of the phrase.
This story was recorded in front of our live audience at the Bernal Heights Public Library in San Francisco, September 24, 2014.
