Whether or not you are a member of Blind Tiger Record Club, both the Blind Tiger Record Club Podcast and the Blind Tiger Record Club On Air are great ways to get introduced to some new artists and discover some albums that you may not be familiar with. All the music in our subscription program and that we discuss on this show are on vinyl and have been released in the last 30 - 60 days. The show is designed to be a discovery platform for new music "on vinyl", but even if you do not collect or listen to vinyl, it's still a fun way to explore new music.
