-->'''Octavia''': Look, I will admit this is…creative…but you just can’t have an opera where nonsensical things happen for no reason!\\
'''Vinyl''': Clearly you’ve never heard a rock opera before.

->''"In the year 1001 of the Celestia calendar, Equestrian scientists developed advanced magic making it possible to broadcast music over long distances. This innovation was called “radio,” and quickly became a sensation throughout Equestria. For a period of time, only one frequency playing classical music was available. This changed when a popular young disk jockey with the stage name DJ-[=P0n3=] (born Vinyl [[spoiler: [[EmbarrassingMiddleName Agatha]]]] Scratch) formally proposed the creation of an independent radio station called K-COLT. It was approved, with DJ-P0n3 as the host. In addition to playing rock-and-roll and other popular music, DJ-P0n3 also hosted the first Equestrian talk show known as 'The Vinyl Scratch.' These broadcasts were recorded for historical significance."''

* DeadpanSnarker: Pretty much Octavia’s default setting. ** Though Vinyl tends to snark quite a bit too: -->'''Celestia''' (on the topic of imprisoning Luna on the moon): “T-that’s a bit out of context.” -->'''Vinyl''': “Fair enough. Please explain the context of hurling your little sister into the dark reaches of space.” [[SnarkToSnarkCombat The snark almost reaches critical mass]] when [[spoiler: Vinyl and Octavia are guests on Blueblood and Trixie's radio show]] in Season 2 Episode 5. Literally everypony has a few sarcastic lines.

* {{Crossover}}: At one point, ''AudioPlay/DoctorWhoovesAdventures'' did a crossover with the audio version, where they performed a Q&A session together. It was rather easy to set up, because the voice of the Doctor (The Jamjar) is also the director of the audio version of ''The Vinyl Scratch Tapes.'' * ADayInTheLimelight: The entire story is one for the two mane characters. Also, Williams takes the other members of Octavia's ensemble (who are often ignored by the fandom) and gives them names, personalities and dialogue (except for Harpo Parish Nadermane, who's TheVoiceless [[spoiler:until chapter two of the second season to provide a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming]]).
