FM90 is getting ready for our second year of Vinylthon! On Saturday, April 13th we’ll be playing 5 hours of nothing but vinyl. This year we are excited to have support from Spinning Jenny’s House of Music in Shamrock. We’ll have some videos of my recent visit to the store coming soon.
Vinylthon is not only great to participate in because it’s fun, but it’s also a day of learning for our students. They get to witness the “old days” of radio and how DJs before them had to change records every 2 ½ minutes. The students are encouraged to bring their own vinyl and share stories about why it’s important to them. Last year our students brought everything from Zack Brown to Van Halen, even some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
For the first time we’ll be including the first two hours of Body and Soul into Vinylthon. Brian Frank and I will be spinning our favorite “Old School Jams”.
We’re can’t wait for another chance to celebrate records and their importance in the history of radio. FM90 and Vinylthon can be heard on 89.9 FM and online right here at kacvfm.org.
