Previous Episode | Next Episode When Vinyl Sales Spin Upward
There's something about vinyl. Is it the hiss, the crackle, the warm tones? Today we look at the booming popularity of records, which in 2009 are on track to sell 50 percent more than in 2008. Plus: the Asphalt Orchestra marches into our studio.
When Vinyl Sales Spin Upward
Vinyl sales jumped 89 percent last year and they are currently on course to top out at a record-setting 2.8 million units sold in 2009, a 50 percent increase from 2008. Today, we ask why vinyl seems to transcend technological innovation and even the music it records. Joining us is Greg Milner, author of Perfecting Sound Forever: The Story of Recorded Music.

Tell us: Do you buy new vinyl? What's the appeal? Leave a comment.

Vinyl Presses on in Nashville
With the ongoing comeback of vinyl, record pressing plants are seeing a jump in business. Among them is Nashville's United Record Pressing, a company founded in 1949 and which pressed the first Beatles 7"s in America, prior to Capitol signing them. Today it is one of the largest — and last — vinyl record manufacturers in the country.

Asphalt Orchestra Live
Tonight marks the debut of a new 12-piece marching band called the Asphalt Orchestra. Its repertoire doesn’t encompass Sousa marches or school fight songs but rather charts by Bjork, Charles Mingus, Frank Zappa or the members of the Broadway hit musical "Passing Strange." Asphalt Orchestra debuts around the plaza of Lincoln Center but we get a sneak preview today on Soundcheck.
