RSR PC 076 Gerosa Records’ Brian & Brian

Gerosa Records opened over 37 years ago now in Western Connecticut – this month we talk to Brian and his son Brian (referred to as Junior on the show and generally in their shop). We talk about the rollercoaster of the record business over those years.

We talk about how Gerosa Construction (elder Brian’s father’s company) figures into a couple pretty neat facts in music history. We talk about what we’re all listening to. We touch on the upcoming Record Store Day and generally jaw about music! Take a ride!

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.
