Welcome to the I HeartRadio Station, and weekly Web Radio Show all about Records! I'm Paul Cavalconte, curator and host of The Vinyl Experience Radio Show and now The Vinyl Experience Station on I HeartRadio. The Vinyl Experience began as a weekly hour-long show on New York's Adult Alternative Rock station 101.9 WRXP. When the station signed off the air in 2011, the show moved to the web. The Progressive Radio Network (prn.fm) presents The Vinyl Experience Radio Show as a live stream each Friday at 5PM ET and on demand in their Archives. Canada's Radio That Doesn't Suck.com (rtds.ca) ecores The Vinyl Experience around the clock on Sundays at 9 and 3. On June 20, 2015, The Vinyl Experience On I Heart radio launched as a 24 hour custom station. Steam it anywhere with the I Heart Radio smartphone app, or on the web at iheartradio.com. 25 years after the advent of the CD promised “perfect sound forever”, an alternate technology is showing gains while CD sales cave to digital downloads, and music fans boil their bulky hard-media music collections down into I Pod stew. The technology on the rise was the very one displaced by the CD market in the first place. The “technology” is Vinyl LP playback—back, and arguably better than ever! As a lifelong enthusiast and collector, I will gather all you need to know about following this fun and rewarding branch of The Rock Experience. -I’ll summarize new releases and reissues, with details not just about the music, but the packaging and pressing quality. -I’ll help de-mystify the specifics of playback, and show you tricks and techniques for spinning records on a budget. (See the "Basics" Blog-post articles) A new generation of music fans crave a more intimate, involving relationship with recorded sound. Most indie and alternative contemporary rock artists insist on vinyl releases, along with standard digital. Big labels are showing new pride in their classic catalogs, offering new vinyl product for the first time in decades, taking greater care than ever before in reissuing treasured titles in deluxe packages, touting better quality mastering and pressing of the record itself, and enhanced detail in artwork reproduction. Hobbyists are discovering the arcane joys of vintage Hi Fi, while modern manufacturers are meeting that growing market head-on with new turntable, cartridge and preamplifier products that improve on classic designs. E-Bay crackles with high-roller auctions of collectible discs that spin astronomical sums. Yes, some sixty years after Columbia unveiled the first commercial 33 1/3 vinyl long-player, records are hot, sexy and here to stay!

The master IS the art work. And for the last time—Giles gave us a different, not better, Sgt Pepper. Because (repeat after me)The Master Is The Artwork. Now read this and weep deeply:
It was the biggest disaster in the history of the music business — and almost nobody knew. This is the story of the 2008 Universal fire.
Japanese-style listening bars, where D.J.’s spin carefully selected records for a hushed audience, are arriving in America. But truly appreciating them can take a little practice.

The photo of Tommy Dorsey is from 1947 at New York City's WMCA radio. The photo of Donald Fagan is of the now iconic 1982 album The Nightfly. I wish I knew of the Dorsey photo when I interviewed Donald some years back, it might just have been his inspiration.
Remember Mark Hollis by spinning one of Talk Talk’s extraordinary EMI albums, among the most creative and best recorded of the era. And as a nature-buff, I always appreciated the cartoon-accuracy of this album cover, with Attacus and Antherea moths well depicted
It's all about sound

Conceived by our desire to bring the record collecting community together, Crate Diggers provides attendees an opportunity to buy/sell records, listen to music, and dance alongside those that share a deep passion for vinyl.
An edgy reminder to always handle by the edges.
A friend often referred to Hi Fi as a "one man, one dog hobby." It's the late night solitary listening moments that reveal the most. Here's a guy who knew from late night sessions. Swell listening room, Frankie. And that fruit bowl-full of fresh cig packs keeps the hobby happy AND healthy!

Founder of Tower Records dies at 92 while drinking whiskey and watching the Oscars
Russ Solomon, the music-loving visionary who founded Tower Records and created the most famous company in Sacramento history, died Sunday night. He was 92.
While the abandoned Tappan Zee bridge rusts along side it's shiny new Hudson river replacement, this vintage record label recalls it's glory days. Jazz keyboardist and composer Bob James honored his New York suburbs home base with this boutique label in 1975. Hear a cut from it on this week's VE show, archived at prn.fm, and airing at 9 and 3 round the clock Sundays on rtds.ca.
The ubiquitous record album of garage sales and dollar-a-disc bins, "The First Family" is a charming artifact of an innocent time that ground to a halt on 11/22/63. As did Vaughn Meader, almost.
Vaughn Meader became famous for his presidential impression. He ended his life in obscurity, but beloved.

Every crate digger’s nightmare: Record store has ‘Whipped Cream and Other Delights’ and nothing else
If there’s one thing all record collectors have in common, it’s the experience of running into Whipped Cream & Other Delights by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass innumerable times…. like literally, every time you go into a record store you haven’t been to already. If you’re flipping through the A...
Thanks Walter, for the taste and the ears.
Donald Fagen's complexly anachronistic lyrics (long scrutinized by the band's exegetes), jazz-and-rock-spanning compositional technique, ultra-discerning selection of session musicians, and immaculate studio craft which, by the standards of the 1970s, raised popular music's bar through the ceiling.
Interesting that they have bypassed "Red Book" altogether, offering SACD and Vinyl as a combo. While this is a spotty work artistically, it sure is ear-candy.
