TVD Radar: The Podcast with Evan Toth, Episode 63: Marc Hollander of Crammed Discs Records

The idea of being eclectic is a beautiful one, who doesn’t want to experience the depth and breadth of whatever it is they are trying to experience? However, usually, we find that institutions reject the heavy lifting that comes with embracing an eclectic body of work. Be it a restaurant, radio station, or shoe store; most things have some sort of theme, some kind of common thread. It’s understandable, such expectations are necessary; humans like familiarity.

However, sometimes we’re excited to buy the ticket and take the ride, no matter where it might lead. If that describes your carefree nature, then you might want to add Crammed Discs to your list of favorite record labels. In this episode, you’ll meet Marc Hollander who has helmed the Belgian label since 1980, releasing music from the whole world—rock, pop, electronica, modern classical, and much more—and a lot of it: about 360 albums and 250 singles.

So, maybe you’re looking for something different, or maybe you’re always an adventurous music listener who wants to lock into a label who shares your wild tastes. Hollander isn’t afraid to explore the recesses, and neither should you. You’ll never know what to expect, but try it, you might like it, there’s a lot of cool music crammed onto these discs.
