The Indie Gramophone

 

Whether you're spinning 45s, 78s, or LPs, you'll discover gold in the vinyl this week on American Routes. We check in with the record label dedicated to resurrecting lost sounds for the digital age, Dust-to-Digital. For some soul sides, we hear from Gabriel Roth, founder of Daptone Records, who's re-imaging classic soul with the band Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. We'll also talk to the man who got the Bossa Nova on record and started the Impulse label, jazz producer Creed Taylor. Then it's off to Ville Platte for a conversation with Cajun recordman Floyd Soileau of Swallow Records. Plus tunes to get the jukebox shaking!
