From the Press Release given to …Thwart!:
"We're encouraging a more interactive vinyl experience with our audience-centered format," said Goolsby. "Records are a hands-on medium—you have to turn the record over, you can't program in the next track, the clicks and pops are exquisite imperfections that ground the listener in the sound. We want to foster a relaxed environment that encourages people to bring their friends and their records from home, and explore the various soundscapes in a community setting. No genre will be excluded. If people bring Johnny Cash, they'll get Johnny Cash. If they bring Chopin, we'll spin Chopin. The point is to enjoy the music and promote lively discussion."
"The local-only block is going to be particularly interesting," Goolsby said. "Margaret and I look forward to encouraging listeners, who might not otherwise be local music scholars, to come out and hear homegrown talent. The Tristate's music scene is truly first-class. We hope local artists and bands will come out, bring their vinyl, and help us to support their endeavors."
*Darling and Goolsby have even taken to live tweeting the Tuesday night show; songs played, songs requested, observations... Needless to say, every time leading to some verily interesting tweets bringing to mind DRUNK MUSIC REVIEWS except song by song. Their show tweeting is interactive. They WILL respond and 'shove back' when poked and prodded.
Devout Wax is the sort of even that makes living in the Cincinnati area worth it.
