Vinylthon 2020 – Day 1

Saturday, April 18th, 2020 by The Professor

It’s VINYLTHON 2020! Originally scheduled for today April 18, but rescheduled (along with Record Store Day) to June 20 but WE DON’T CARE! We are doing TWO days of Vinylthon instead of one. It’s just how we roll… Tune in all day for shows that are 100% spun from vinyl starting at 1am today and running through midnight! You’ll hear current DJ shows as well as alumni shows in one and two hour formats. WLOY has received a golden slipmat every year for doing at least 12 hours of all vinyl and this year even though we’re not making the usual full 24 we’re still running 18 hours of all vinyl shows!

What is Vinylthon you ask? Read the press release below and find out more!

Over 100 radio stations will go vinyl-only for charity event Vinylthon 2020, with many stations broadcasting from their DJ’s homes

Despite severe disruptions caused by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, across the USA and the world, radio stations will celebrate the unique format of vinyl by going vinyl-only on Vinylthon, April 18, 2020. Organizers hope it will provide essential comfort to listeners through entertainment during this difficult time.

WLOY may be locked down but our DJs are still making shows! Like clockwork Nick Centanni (’11) sends in a new Moldie Oldies show from his bunker every week – loaded with vintage classic hits from the 50s-70s. Don’t forget to sit up straight and straighten your tie when Frank “The Chainman of the Board” Sinatra makes an appearance or yell a joyous “ELVIS!” at the arrival of The King. Tune in every Wednesday at 10am for 2 hours of great music, terrible jokes, random alumni callers and lots of fun. It’s like AM Rock Radio never went away!
