We’re joining hundreds of other stations around the world and (for the 5th year in a row) earning our Golden Slipmat Award for participating. Last year (thanks COVID) we actually had 2 Vinylthons and we did 24hrs twice! This year we’ve only got one day of all vinyl (so far) but its a good one. Tune in and check out the shows. Note that because of COVID restrictions we are pre-recording our shows to limit in-studio exposure but they’re all being played on vinyl, clicks and all, we promise!
