Instead of a typical Best Of recap episode at year's end, I thought it'd be fun for Cameron Schaefer -- partner and head of music at Vinyl Me, Please -- to return to the show to look back at each of VMP's 12 albums of the month for 2016 and talk about why each record was chosen, the reactions to each release from subscribers and other vinyl fanatics, and what challenges or unexpected awesome surprises awaited them during the process. From Nada Surf to Nina Simone, Big Bill Broonzy to Beck and everything in between, this is a great way to learn more about the how's and why's of the selection process for Vinyl Me, Please which continues to wow long-time collectors and first-time spinners year after year. If you'd like more info on VMP's back story and Cameron's own relationship with vinyl, don't forget to go back to episode 19 of Vinyl Emergency, when he made his first guest spot!
