Record Store Day

Saturday April 17th is going to be a great day for Vinyl Junkies!  Several Madison independent record stores are planning special events for the 3rd Annual Record Store Day..and record labels and distributors are shipping out $1.3 million in product especially for the day, 90 percent of it on vinyl. What will collectors be chomping at the bit to get? Among the items set for release: a John Lennon box set of 45's, a 45 of the Beatles "Rain/Paperback Writer" (limited to 1000 copies), a reissue of R.E.M's Chronic Town on blue vinyl, plus stuff from Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen. Here's a bizarre one: the Flaming Lips remake of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Muse, Owl City, Phoenix, and the Def-tones will also have vinyl only singles that they'll be releasing. Selection will vary depending on the store--so you might want to call ahead to see what's available at your favorite record store. Madison stores taking part include B-Side, Exclusive Company, MadCity Music Exchange, Strictly Discs and Sugar Shack. Find out more about Record Store Day here. Bonus--they're also offering two free downloads from Widespread Panic.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a One Hit...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time. But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made it all the way...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio. A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song or a...
