HotRodRock 4-6 PM Wednesday 4/10/19 Fastest Two Hours on Radio!
7 April 2019 General
Lots of music and stuff to talk about , but first business. Twice a year we ask you to support WSLR your community radio station. Starting Wed. the 24th for one week all the DJ’s will be begging for your coin. Put a dollar amount on how much you value having a radio station beholden to no one but the people of Sarasota and pledge.
Record Store Day is Saturday April 13th! Get out and support your locally owned independent record stores. They are all having special events for the day. Jerk Dog Records up in the arts district of Bradenton is also celebrating their 5th year in business on Record Store Day. Some other great independents also doing killer events this day! Salty Dog Records, Rocket Star Records , Rock Roots Records
If anyone needs a record player and wants to get a jump on WSLR’s marathon . A $50 pledge gets you a turntable and 10 hand selected 45’s from my collection. You can view the turntable and records at HotRodRock’s FB page.
