It’s a music episode, people. Richard chats with Karl Hofstetter, owner and creative mind behind Joyful Noise Recordings, about record flippers and following your own path as a label. Yes, the audio quality for the interview is noisy but you’ll get over it. Next, Richard talks about a cool Secret Santa vinyl gift exchange he did and invites his lucky recipient Ryan on the show for a quick hangout session. They also discuss R.E.M., Richard’s favorite band of all time, for a hot minute. Thanks for all your listens and likes and support this year. We’re looking forward to more Surface Noise in 2017 with you.
