EMMIS Triple A/Rock hybrid WRXP (THE NEW YORK ROCK EXPERIENCE)/NEW YORK will launch a brand-new specialty show beginning this SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25th called "The Vinyl Experience." Hosted by PAUL CAVALCONTE, who also pens the station website blog of the same name, the show will air from 9-10a
On The Vinyl Experience debut show, WHITE STRIPES/RACONTEURS front man JACK WHITE and STEELY DAN’s DONALD FAGEN talk about making music for the vinyl medium. Every week therein celebrities and pundits from the music press will be invited to weigh in on vinyl's new hot streak. Further, all music will be sourced from vinyl records and played on premium hi-fi equipment to ensure authenticity
During the show, CAVALCONTE will give listeners a chance to reveal a record that changed their lives or was their inspiration to spinning vinyl in the 21st century. He will also update listeners with vinyl news, cover new releases and offer turntable tips to keep home systems running optimally.
"The Vinyl Revival is back! We wanted to showcase the reasons people are collecting and listening to vinyl again. I remember reading a quote from mastering engineer BOB LUDWIG, saying ‘records sound warmer and give you a better sense of the way the music actually feels,’ which is part of the Rock Experience at ‘RXP," said WRXP PD LESLIE FRAM.
