Listen To This Episode - 44:19
On this Valentine’s Day edition of the Women in Vinyl Podcast, we’re celebrating Black History Month and the thing we love most records. We are fortunate to be joined by the incredible Nina Smith, liason for the F.A.M.S Coalition (Forever a Music Store). Nina tells us about how FAMS is supporting and nurturing Black entrepreneurs in opening new record stores, sustaining Black owned record stores and giving back to the communities around those stores with their unique and socially conscious campaigns and programs. We want to shine a light on FAMS and the amazing work they are doing. Follow, share, and support your local record store.
