Nate Goyer explains of his decision to make the catalog avaliable to the public; “I have hours and hours of interviews with some of the most beloved musicians in history. I have no interest in keeping that locked away. It’s bigger than me, those interviews belong to the fans and listeners.”
Goyer continues, “I have a heap of interviews, literally days and days of audio chock full of fascinating and rarely heard rock and roll tales. I’ll be making high-resolution audio files available online over the coming weeks and months until I’m caught up.”
The files will be licensed under Creative Commons, meaning they will be free for anyone to use however they wish.
As Goyer notes, even public radio could benefit as any station could use The Vinyl Guide’s archives broadcasting purposes. “I could be the new nightshift for some of these stations that can’t afford a late night DJ,” he says.
What a legend.
