On Saturday, April 22, 88.9 WRDL participated in Vinylthon 2017. Hosted by the College Radio Foundation, Vinylthon is a day in which College Radio stations are encouraged to play vinyl on-air. This year, WRDL was one of only 12 stations across the country that played vinyl for 24 straight hours. For the station’s efforts during Vinylthon, WRDL will receive the Golden Slipmat award, awarded to all stations who played vinyl exclusively for 24 hours. The award is sponsored by Glowtronics.
