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!
Damon Marzano joins us this month to talk about his journey through myriad music industry positions from working at a few record stores – most notably Phoenix Records in Waterbury – to Apple to Google… to his current label Noize In The Attic Records.
We talk about what we’re all listening to. Damon talks about working with Mick Jagger. We talk about the upcoming gig he booked in Hamden on May 3rd with Junkyard. And we go on in related directions to all of the above.
John Zaccaria writes music as The Knife Kickers. Friends fill out the band; it is a rotating cast with John at the center. Ryan Prushinski helped with the latest record that is set to come out in early 2024. Ryan played drums on just over half the songs (he also drums in Doom Beach who’ve been on the pod before; click here for that) and produced/engineered the recording of the album.
We talk to John and Ryan about the new record, playing music in general and how the local indie rock scene gave way to his musical journey. We have the privilege of playing a few songs from the new album (one in full at the end of the interview and a couple partial songs in the mix of the interview).
