Vinyl makes a comeback in Freo
We received an email from Adam at Radio Fremantle in Western Australia today about a fun content piece they've done. Rather than us explain it, we'll throw to Adam to tell the story;
Hi Jay, My name is Adam and alongside my good buddy Matt, we produce and present "The Kitchen", a drive show on the WA community radio station, Radio Fremantle.
I'm writing to you with a bit of news about our little show that's taking a step backward in technology, as a challenge to produce a show using technology that was being surpassed by more digital mediums, before either host was born.
Back in October 2012, I had a discussion with one of my friends about how vinyl was making a huge comeback. After not much prompting (and also because our station still happens to have 2 Technics turntables installed in the main studio…) we decided to start a weekly segment entitled "Like a Record". With this segment, we'd bring in a vinyl album or a single, and give a song from it a spin.
We first aired the segment on Friday, 12th of October 2012, and today, after a "challenge accepted" moment, we're taking this all one step further, and running the entire show off vinyl, to relive the days that were. And yes, we're going to be doing our intro live, no pre-production on any of that!
We've raided our own collections, plus also those of our parents, to bring an insanely diverse collection of music together, ranging from modern music that was released this year, all the way back to 1964.
Our show airs from 3 to 5pm WA time, on 107.9fm in Fremantle and surrounding suburbs, online at radiofremantle.com on via the Tune In application on iOS and Android.
