In addition to being Record Store Day, Saturday is also The College Radio Foundation’s annual Vinylthon event. The fourth edition of Vinylthon is set to be the biggest yet, with almost 140 stations across 10 countries dedicating programming to the vinyl format. Some stations are even going for 24 hours. Vinylthon is a great way to highlight record collecting and collectors, but as its website notes, it “is also a fundraiser… to give grants to college radio stations to stay on the air by purchasing and repairing much needed equipment. By participating, stations are not only demonstrating their love of the vinyl format, but are supporting college radio too!”
