RSR PC 071 Undergrounds Record Cafe – Nick & Dean

Undergrounds Record Cafe opened under a year ago (about 8 months) in Oakville, CT.
We are joined this month by Nick & Dean – the owners of this new hybrid café and record shop. Dean has been shopping with us basically since we opened and his son Nick used to tag along and get lost in the racks (or go over to the sports memorabilia shop and come back to wrangle dad). Time keeps on moving! We start off in the same way we usually do – talking about what we’re listening to. We then move the conversation to different aspects of the restaurant and Nick’s culinary background. We talk to Dean about what they carry and how they’ve been reaching more and more folks as word gets out.

Dean will also be at our record fair next Sunday with a table full of records (and maybe some bread or some sort of sampling from the café?! Something’s in the works. ).   Conversation pushes towards what the future holds for the restaurant and possible events and possible dinner services (special occasions).

The Redscroll Podcast is a monthly show (new episodes on the first of the month) that works as a companion to what we do at Redscroll Records in Wallingford, CT USA. We are a record store that has a heavy emphasis on the left of center / underground music of the world. Whether it be underappreciated or just has a niche audience, marginalized or just off the radar it’s all of interest to us. With the show we’ll generally have a localized focus. We’ll discuss what is in our personal rotation at the moment. We’ll talk to guests who have to do with all of the above. And we’ll talk about specific dealings with the store.
