Folks at the Cincinnati Public Library understand that we all have a few favorite albums that the vast population don't regard as “masterpieces.” Whether it’s an old Nickelback or Vanilla Ice record, just about everyone has an album or two that they likely will not be recommending to friends. 

“My Favorite Album is Terrible” is a new virtual series from the Cincinnati Public Library in which local musicians chat with library staff about those guilty pleasure listens, diving into what makes these bad albums so good.

This series will be bi-weekly, with the first episode going live at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18 on Cincinnati Library’s Facebook page. The inaugural stream will feature local hip-hop and visual artist Grandace talking about Anderson Paak’s album “Oxnard.”

Other guests will include Cincinnati band The Ophelias and Bryan Devendorf, the drummer of nationally known rock band The National. During the stream, attendees are encouraged to share their favorite terrible albums in the comment section, where Cincy Library staff member Kent Mulcahy will share his own favorite bad albums.
