Kane dives into how he solicited releases and what he’d like to put out in the future – archival and new acts alike.  We talk about his daily EMT life and veer off in a couple different pathways as well. Check it out!

RSR PC 078 Little Lost Records (Abbie, Conor & Randy)

On this episode we talk to the purveyors of Little Lost Records in Stafford Springs, CT.  Musical folks looking to spread their love of music in the North East corner of CT opened their store just about a year ago. Conor and Abbie discuss meeting through their connection to Paul Winter! Through that connection they opened this new store. Randy (previously on our podcast in 2017 as a member of the band Cable) visited their shop opening day and quickly became a regular and soon partner! Listen to all the details on this episode!

We talk about the music we’re listening to. We talk about the music they make outside of the shop. We talk about the music that happens in their shop! We talk about the music made by another shopkeep, Ian of Records the Good Kind (check out his episode on the podcast here and his musical project, The Aspersions here and his previous group Musical Chairs here). We talk about the town of Stafford Springs and what they’d like to see move in to their town. We go off in a few directions. Take a listen!

RSR PC 077 Dirt Devil (Allie, Dan, Lemmy, Nikki)

This month we talk to 4 out of 5 members of Dirt Devil – Allie, Dan, Lemmy and Nikki! (Laura lives in Providence and coordinating all 5 would’ve been tricky!)  We talk about what we’re all listening to. We talk about the new album Desert Moon coming out on April 8th (the day of the 100% total eclipse!) and what went into that – including all the visual aspects (costumes, props, videos… links below).

The Don GiovanniCalifornia X (Dan and Lemmy’s previous band) pipeline… we go on. Their couple release shows are coming up April 12th (here at the store) and May 4th (western Mass.). Check it out!
