The Vinyl Departure

Saturdays at 12pm

Hosted by:

Gary Reinbolt, John Fracchia

WVBR was an early leader in playing album oriented rock (AOR) and that tradition is reflected every Saturday from 12:00-3:00PM on the Vinyl Departure. Featuring music from artists who came of age during the first vinyl era, the show is eclectic and it isn't unusual to hear divergent styles of artists within the same set, let alone the same show. We play both well and lesser known artists and, while you may hear the occasional hit, you are more likely to hear great, lesser played album tracks, specially curated by your hosts and frequently with a theme. The Vinyl Departure is what you grew up wishing all radio sounded like. Listen on your radio or the internet and be sure to like us on our Facebook page.
