We received this beautiful vertical turntable and when Christian immediately plugged it into the radio station and we heard that warm, familiar crackle on the airwaves, we knew there was only one thing we could do.

And so, just after 8am on Thursday the 28th of June, 2018, the iconic ‘Blister In The Sun’ by the Violent Femmes was blaring out of the GOLD104.3 speakers, on VINYL.

What a time to be alive.

On the next show, and for the first time since who knows when, listeners came into the studio with their favourite vinyls to play out over the Melbourne airwaves.

If you have a vinyl you’d love to play on GOLD104.3, get in touch with Christian via email on christian@gold1043.com.au!
