Photo credit: Ali Fogel

Our last installment of Record Club fell on Record Store Day and was wicked fun. Loads of people stopped by with stuff they picked up that day or some old gems that they dug out to share.

The next round of Record Club is TOMORROW 5.8.10 from 3 to 5 PM at Radio Bean.

What are you going to bring?

Javelin have a new record out that kills. I just might be bringing that by...


Record Club Part Deux

The second installment of Burlington Record Club is tomorrow and coincides with Record Store Day! The local forecast is calling for rain straight through the weekend making Saturday a perfect day to pick up some new wax at one of the record shops in town and then come spin it at Radio Bean with us. Click here to check out the full list of special releases and reissues that are coming out on Record Store Day.

Don't know about you guys, but I have my eye on that Happy Birthday 7" out on Sub Pop. From their website:

Two brand-new and exclusive tracks for Record Store Day 2010 from Kyle “King Tuff” Thomas’ Happy Birthday. Both of these tracks, like those of Happy Birthday’s self-titled March 2010 debut album, were recorded and mixed at Kyle’s home studio. Available March 16th: Happy Birthday’s Happy Birthday SP850 CD/LP.
Side A: “Shampoo”
Side B: “Alien”

Also looking forward to some sweet reissues/releases from Wilco, Drive By Truckers, Fucked Up, Joe Strummer and LCD Soundsystem!

Less Digital, More Manual: QCSC Presents Record Club

Emerging from the winter doldrums, QCSC is throwing its first event for a few months. At the inaugural Record Club, QCSC member and Radiator DJ, Brian Nagle, will set up his turntables and mixer and invite the crowd to bring some of their favorite vinyl to spin. With over eight years of experience DJing on the radio and in clubs, Nagle was sick of people complaining about what DJ’s play. He wanted to find a creative way for people to share their music and learn about new stuff in a more social setting than MP3 blogs and bit torrent sites. Starting Saturday April 3 at Radio Bean, people can come down, grab a drink and relax with an eclectic mix of Burlingtonians and their music.

Participants are encouraged to show up a few minutes early to get on the sign up sheet—karaoke style. Nagle will man the wheels of steel and cue up each person's song as it’s their turn. A mic will be set up too if people want to tell everyone why their song is their song. Each record club will be recorded and posted on The Radiator website as a podcast to give the world a snapshot of what Burlington is listening to in a given week.

Record Club’s tagline of “Less Digital, More Manual” says it all. Anything and everything is welcome as long as it’s on vinyl. Complete details are below.

About The Radiator

WOMM-LP "The Radiator" is a noncommercial low power FM radio station located in downtown Burlington. The station began broadcasting with 100 watts in the autumn of 2007 on the frequency of 105.9 FM. The Radiator serves the surrounding community by creating locally oriented programming, filling the void left by regional and national networks whose markets are too broad to permit this social and geographic focus.

About Queen City Social Club

Queen City Social Club was started by a couple of Radiator DJs as a way to produce Radiator-sponsored events and get people in the community together creatively. The idea for a "social club" came after repeated listens to the Buena Vista Social Club record. Social clubs existed in cities around the Caribbean as a spot for musicians to get together and play and for people to just come party. The Queen City Social Club is meant to do the same in our humble burg--it is you, your friends and a bunch of people you don't know yet.



Something is in the works at the Queen City Social Club. More details to come.


GWAR on WOMM-LP The Radiator!

While in Burlington for a Higher Ground gig, Oderus Urungus of the mighty GWAR was kind enough to record a station ID for The Radiator. Listen for it when you tune in at 105.9 FM or www.theradiator.org.


Salsa Night recap and photos

Last week's inaugural Queen City Social Club event was a hit. Jah Red absolutely killed it for us on the decks while Victoria from Salsalina was gracious enough to give us salsa amateurs some lessons. Go out and support Salsalina Dance Studios by checking out their Wednesday night drop-in classes. You can hear Jah Red spinning on WOMM-LP Friday afternoons from 1-3pm on his show "The Real Caribbean." Thanks to Red Square for hosting us and to all who came out and supported The Radiator.
