Yesterday’s Revolution: The Minneapolis 78 RPM Record Scene

Lots of folks are into vinyl these days. Some people are even making mix tapes again. But if you really want to embrace obscure, seemingly dead media, there’s no better way to do it than to buy 78 rpm records. This documentary takes listeners inside the rarefied world of 78 record enthusiasts, including Greg Carr, former KFAI “Dig Up the Roots” DJ, and Scott Holthus, owner of Vintage Music Company in Minneapolis. Holthus owns hundreds of thousands of 78 records and he refurbishes the machines that plays them.

Songs of Praise is a Gospel Music Program that mixes the old with the new. Traditional as well as local gospel artist are asked to submit their music for air play. This is a show that is here for every gospel or inspirational music artist who will take the steps necessary to get their music onto the world's airwaves.

   DJSLT ("Across The Board" Fridays 2-5AM) and David Wiley (formerly of "Mystery Train") created and presented this weeks show. If you missed it, check out the archive (until around 5PM July 7th). I think you will agree it was exceptional. Great job guys!
