EP 22. Record Store Day
Sep 22, 2020 Season 2 Episode 7
Steve Nelson & Keith Nottonson

Vinyl is poised to outsell CDs this year (2020) for the first time since 1986.

A big part of that can be attributed to Record Store Day which has been raising the profile and interest in music on vinyl since 2008. From humble beginnings with just 10 special releases to this year's COVID-inspired four consecutive months of Record Store Days featuring hundreds of unique, exclusive, and early releases, it has grown into a global phenomenon.

Join Steve as he regales Keith with why he made the vinyl plunge and shares some of his favorite releases from Record Store Days past.

Even if you can't make one of the Record Store Day Drops (9/26, 10/24) or Black Friday, please visit your local independent record store. Even if you haven't played vinyl since the 80s.

Check out some of the selections we mentioned in this weeks chat:
Stephen Malkmus - Cold Son EP
The Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen at 21
Jimi Hendrix - Message to Love/Changes
The Flaming Lips - Onboard the International Space Space Station Concert for Peace
Pavement - Quarantine the Past [RSD Version]
