About Record Roulette

Record Roulette is committed to expanding musical horizons.

It all started when host Eamon O'Flynn wanted to force himself to listen to new-to-him music. He began selecting albums from the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest list at random to explore. After annoying his wife with blather about each album, he realized that it'd be more fulfilling (and healthier for his marriage) if he found some other people to share the experience.

Now, we have incredible guests with a wide variety of perspectives - musicians, journalists, scientists and more - select an album from the list to discuss. We've covered everything from Janet Jackson and Shakira to Dire Straits and The Doors. 

Join us on this quest to appreciate more music - take a spin with Record Roulette.
