International Record Store Day 2012

Posted 4/20/2012 11:46:00 AM

Greetings Citizens!

           Tomorrow is International Record Store Day!  We hope you get out and support local record stores in our area and there are a bunch of great ones, including Main Street Music in Manayunk.  Main Street Music has a full day of events Saturday with seven local bands performing live.  You can find more details HERE.  There are plenty of othere stores in the area throwing parties as well.  But the best part is all the exclusive releases that will be available only tomorrow, and most of them are on vinyl!  I've got five of them to give away on the air today, including a demos release from Pete Townshend, a picture disc from Ozzy, and a red 45 from the White Stripes.  Stay tuned!

 

Cheers,

 

Pierre



Record Store Day - April 16th

Posted 4/2/2011 11:00:00 AM
             As you may know, Record Store day is happening on April 16th and this year there are so many great LPs and 45s being released!  Tom Petty's first two albums on colored vinyl, The Foo Fighters' covers (Baker Street, Band on the Run, Have a Cigar) on an LP, Joan Jett's first album on clear vinyl, to name a few and all of them will be released as a limited print run.  That's all way cool but the best thing is simply supporting your local record store.  You've probably noticed how scarce record stores are these days so April 16th is a day we can celebrate these mom and pop shops and help keep them in business.  For a list of albums being released this year click HERE and support your local record store!

Armand Records is always my first stop when looking for turntables and turntable supplies. What good is a vinyl collection if you can't pull one off the shelf and listen every once in a while?

Pierre's Interviews:

It was announced this week that KORN will join Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium, Asking Alexandria plus a whole slew of others on this year's Mayhem Fest tour. Sara and Rabbi talked with Korn frontman Jonathan Davis about being a part of the annual festival once again, writing with Brian "Head" Welch in the studio after his long absence from the band, their latest album The Paradigm Shift and the video for the song "Spike In My Veins" (below), Jonathan's custom "Bitch" mic stand, musical influences, and more... Stream the chat now and get your tickets for Mayhem HERE. We'll see ya at the SBC on Friday August 1st!

 

Kenny Wayne Shepherd stopped by our studios with Noah Hunt before their sold out show at the Keswick Theatre with the Experience Hendrix Tour. We hear they'll be back in town by the summertime... Listen to our chat to find out more about that, plus the new KWS album on the horizon, and how Jimi Hendrix influenced Kenny as a young blues guitarist.

Today, David Florig, the Executive Director of WePac was in to discuss the library situation in the Philadelphia School System. Right now there are only 12 state paid libraries open at elementary schools in Philly, 28 over all. There are 150 schools in Philly. WePac uses volunteers and money to open the libraries in the schools. Get more information at their website. Thank you so much for listening,
