Vinyl Me, Please has been supplying record lovers with exclusive album presses each month -- whether they be well-known classics, brand new releases or long-buried gems -- since January 2013 as a subscription-based service. Today, VMP's head of label relations Cameron Schaefer and I discuss their growth over the last three years, the feedback they get from their subscribers, how each Album of the Month is chosen and what it was like to hold the original UK master tapes of The Beatles' "Abbey Road," when he visited Capitol Records' extensive archives! We also discuss his youth in rural Wyoming and his career as a pilot in the Air Force prior to joining VMP. Visit vinylmeplease.com for more info on how to subscribe, and follow @VinylMePlease on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. You can also follow Cameron on Twitter and Instagram, @cjschaefer. Be sure to listen as well for details on our Everclear vinyl giveaway this week -- courtesy of Intervention Records -- and follow @VinylEmergency on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

On this Collector's Club episode of the show, I chat with Indianapolis resident Nicholas Lynch -- an aficionado on all vinyl and novelties released by Jack White and Third Man Records! Whether a TMR release is liquid-filled, tri-colored, triple-decker, pressed onto old x-rays or can only be played at just 3 RPM, chances are Nicholas has it in his collection! We discuss how he's traded baseball cards with Jack in person, whether or not Nicholas hopes for a White Stripes reunion, his special behind-the-scenes Third Man tour, what makes TMR releases so collectable and rare, and the current market for some of the rarest Jack White-related gems... some of which are selling for nearly $20,000! Nicholas shares his collection visually at instagram.com/thirdmancollector, so go check it out along with today's conversation!
