Once considered a relic of the past, vinyl records are making a huge comeback in central Wisconsin. Shereen Siewert welcomes longtime radio broadcaster Duff Damos and vinyl enthusiast Jaron Childs, a WXPR-Rhinelander volunteer, to discuss the magic of LP records. They wdelve into the reasons more people are rediscovering this popular format – and the magic that happens when the needle drops.
As any record collector will tell you, poring over dusty volumes in forgotten corners of the jazz section, or finding a classic Led Zeppelin record within the treasure trove of 1970s classic rock, is nothing short of a thrill. Thanks to renewed interest in vinyl, more artists are producing LPs, and those LPs are showing up in homes and in independent record stores throughout central Wisconsin.
