For the Love of Vinyl

Friday, 12 October 2012 |

400 Saturdays400 Saturdays: An Anthology of Vinyl Folklore is the new book by Madison’s own Kim Johnson-Bair. In an age of digital downloads, live streams, and endless satellite channels, it’s a love letter to an art form that has refused to be dislodged from the hearts of many audiophiles. This anthology features anecdotes from local musicians, DJs, and artists including throat singer extraordinaire d.b pedersen, cartoonist P.S. Mueller, and performance artist Nicole Gruter.

 

Many WORT DJs, including “Rockin” John McDonald, Bill Malone, and John Kraniak (just to name a few), share memories of their first albums, concerts, and fave music shops and radio stations.

 

Find it at Madison record shops B-Side and Madcity Music. There’s a happy hour book launch at the High Noon Saloon on Tuesday, October 16th at 6pm.
