An Exclusively Vinyl Program Returns to KJHK
Hello everyone, my name is Kyle Stringer, and I am the host of the new special program called “For the Record,” which airs Fridays from 8:00 – 10:00 p.m. The show focuses on the use of vinyl and its benefits, such as: superior sound quality, exclusive music, larger artwork, and having something to show for the money spent on the music. I personally believe that having music that you love on vinyl is superior to any other format. YouTube, pirated mp3s, and Pandora don’t quite cut it… The feeling of putting the needle on the record and hearing the warm and deep sound it provides is like none other, and extremely far from the feeling you get from iTunes and cd’s (cold). Finding a song on an LP generally takes a little work, and makes the listening experience even more satisfying and special.
On “For the Record,” you can expect to hear just about anything. I am using my personal vinyl collection, and in the process of becoming familiar with KJHK’s. Groups/Artists generally heard are: Neon Indian, Queen, The Flaming Lips, Animal Collective, of Montreal, Sufjan Stevens, Pink Floyd, Rush, Deerhoof, The Mars Volta, and more. I try to make sure I play some special tunes every Friday that only people who have the vinyl will have, so others get a chance to listen too.
I’m looking forward to sharing music with you all, and hope that you will let me know what you’d like to hear as well.
See you all out in the universe somewhere,
