Episode 25: “Cool Chris” Veltri

Chris Veltri—colloquially referred to as “Cool Chris”—is the owner of one of my favorite record stores in the world: San Francisco’s Groove Merchant Records. Over the last 25 or so years, the name “Groove Merchant” itself has been synonymous with quality, and has become a worldwide destination for producers, artists, DJ’s, beat makers, and crate diggers.

Whether you’re looking for jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, folk, country, blues, psych, Latin, disco, or rare groove, Chris is THE guy to talk to. Check out the podcast to hear about Chris’ backstory, how he eventually became the proprietor at Groove Merchant, and why his shop has become a beacon for record collectors.
