Album Swap is a podcast where friends share music and have a conversation. The idea for this podcast came from multiple music conversations two co-workers had on a regular basis. These two co-workers, Fred and Brian had similar taste in music even though they are from different generations. Brian is a Gen-Xer who grew up on listening to his brother’s Beatles albums while absorbing the 70s rock and 80s punk. Fred is a Millennial who loves classic rock but also many contemporary artists as well.
