Look At My Records Live! is a freeform radio program that showcases an eclectic variety of music both old and new, with a strong emphasis on the local music scene. Host Tom Gallo conducts candid interviews with area bands and asks them to curate a playlist from his very own record collection. What typically results is an in depth conversation that unveils influences, past experiences, plenty of nostalgia, and even the occasional mutual fawning. You can also catch the occasional live in studio performance and hear special recorded performances from “The McKenzie Tapes” vault, which contains a plethora of live performance at various NYC venues over the course of the last 40 years.
