If you're an avid vinyl collector then you've likely come across some very unique records crafted by Wax Mage Records. These works of art are unlike anything you've ever seen and since they're always created in such small runs, they are highly sought after and coveted. Taste of Vinyl had the honor of speaking to the creator and owner of Wax Mage Records, Heath Gmucs. While he does not divulge his well kept secrets, he does talk about his path to stumbling upon his passion and career for over a decade. He talks all about his time as a bass player in the band HotChaCha, their connection to Gotta Groove Records, and how he came to work at Gotta Groove where he was able to begin his Wax Mage journey. This one is for the vinyl heads! On The Platter: Core by Stone Temple Pilots --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tasteofvinyl/support
