One of our favorite segments each week on the Trail 103.3 is Vinally Friday – a day when your favorite on-air personalities bring a piece of their personal vinyl collection into the Trail studio for a few spins and stories.
The significance is manifold: Not only do we get to feature some lesser-known tracks (and look cool in the process) – but we get to present music LIVE on the air in its original format. True, we’ll often throw a modern record into the mix. But more often than not, we’re spinning the original cut, mono format, hisses, pops, needle scrapes and everything.
How popular is vinyl anyways? According to Fortune Magazine, sales were up 32% last year to $416 million, compared to a 17% decrease in CD sales.
We’d like to say we started it; we really would. But the truth is, we’re not trend-setters. We just give our listeners what you want. So enjoy!
Finally, it’s Friday! It’s Vinally Friday, only on the Trail 103.3.
