Aside from engaging interviews with musicians, record collectors and innovative vinyl creators, Vinyl Emergency wants to assist those in need through our passion for the medium.
JOIN THE MINT CONDITION COALITION
Each Summer, we announce a new charity where listeners can donate to in exchange for entry into a year-end drawing for one of 10 large boxes of records, slipmats, t-shirts and other vinyl related prizes donated by friends of the show, previous guests, record stores around the country.
In 2017, OVER $1,300 was raised by listeners of Vinyl Emergency for the GRAMMY Foundation's MusiCares program, and their hurricane relief efforts for musicians effected by hurricanes in Texas and Florida. Record labels, artists, record stores and more listed to the right were kind enough to donate to our prize list. For a donation as little as $5, winners ended up with a box of vinyl valued at over $200.
Stay tuned for our next charity announcement in 2018!
