Scott Bradlee on PostModern Jukebox

Scott Bradlee, creator of PostModern Jukebox, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss how he is taking today’s pop music and bringing it back to the era of vinyl records and Rat Pack.

“It’s a community of artists,” Bradlee says. This community has featured singer Addie Hamilton and American Idol alum Haley Reinhart.

“I wanted to create this alternate universe where today’s pop music existed many years ago,” he says. The modern songs are reimagined as though they were released back in the days of vinyl records and Motown.
