The Record Spinner Podcast is a music commentary that takes listeners on a trip through the vinyl collection of a young jazz/black music enthusiast. Each episode explores concepts of black pride in the music artform. Leon fuses his love for black music with his love of black people to create a personalized storytelling experience that is uniquely his own while attempting to encourage others to start their own journey. Join the movement!
Leon was born in Washington, D.C. and has been featured on (as well as hosted) several podcast and blogs. A former freelance music writer, Leon has worked in radio and with loads of internet start-ups and his love of music spans all genres and eras of music (1962-1979 is favs). Outside of music, Leon has a regular office job, is an avid reader, and is a self described black liberation(ist) (don't worry I'll talk about this more in later episodes)
