This weekend: MELTED VINYL is here!

'Tis the season for a little hot wax.

For our first official weekend of summer, and a hot one at that, we’re celebrating this weekend on Retro Pop Reunion with MELTED VINYL of the ’80s; THEEEEE hottest albums that still slay today.

Original vinyl, like so many other items that have made a comeback, is a true testament to the concept that “everything old is new again.”  The sale of compact discs first overtook the sale of vinyl records in 1988, with vinyl slowing to an almost “halt” in the early 2000s.  But, with new higher end vinyl players, and many people spending more time at home during the pandemic, vinyl sales slowly grew in the late 2010s, and after 34 years, overtook the sale of CDs AGAIN in 2022 and 2023.

This weekend, those iconic albums of vinyl take center stage, including “Thriller,” “Escape,” “Faith” and so many more.  We’ll also learn which group named their album after their home state, and count down the hits of this weekend in 1983 – a TRUE throwback to an amazing era!

Join us – bring the sunscreen and the vinyl – and let’s have some fun together this weekend!
