Vinylthon 2023 – Saturday, April 22-23

April 19th, 2023 by Liz Kosik

VINYLTHON is here this weekend from April 22 – 23rd! It’s time to celebrate what you can do with some metal presses and 180gm of vinyl. Vinylton is an annual college radio celebration of vinyl where stations all over the world play 24 hours of vinyl programming! This year’s special is bigger than ever and will span 48 hours of vinyl programming! Make sure you tune in to WLOY on April 22nd, as we begin our weekend-long celebration. And don’t forget to check out wloy_radio on Instagram for some favorite vinyl picks from our staff!

Oh, and did we mention WHY this is Vinylthon weekend? It all started as a celebration of the small but mighty record store. Every year there are Record Store Day events that include rare vinyl releases, sales, crazy lines and a general excitement over those lovely pieces of squished vinyl. So we are here to celebrate Record Store Day 2023 and mention just a few of the many record stores here in town.

As a bonus it’s also Alumni Weekend at Loyola so you can expect a lot of people spinning records and making unforced errors as they try to restore their DJ muscle memories 😉
