SETON HALL UNIVERSITY's student-run Active Rock WSOU/ SOUTH ORANGE, NJ will present a live broadcast in honor of Record Store Day this SATURDAY, APRIL 18th from VINTAGE VINYL Records in FORDS, NJ. The broadcast will feature interviews, special requests, and more. Record Store Day is an annual event for independent record stores as well as for the music and broadcast industries, as record labels issue special edition "Record Store Day" releases and radio stations partner with record stores in their communities.
"We are lucky to have VINTAGE VINYL, one of the best independent record stores in the country, only 20 miles away from our studios," said JENNIFER KAJZER, WSOU's Underwriting Sales and Marketing Manager. "WSOU has had a long-standing relationship with VINTAGE VINYL. For decades now, when listeners have heard a band on WSOU that they never heard of before, it is local independent stores like VINTAGE VINYL they have turned to find new music and artists, especially those not yet in the mainstream."
WSOU is also supporting Record Store Day beginning this WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15th by giving away on-air some special edition releases including CLUTCH "From Beale Street to Oblivion" on vinyl, METALLICA "No Life 'Till Leather" cassette tapes, STONE SOUR's EP of cover songs, "Meanwhile in Burbank," and more.
