OAKLAND — In conjunction with the exhibit “Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records,” San Francisco’s community-based radio station, Radio Valencia, will be broadcasting live from the Oakland Museum of California.
The program will run from noon-4pm on Sunday, June 8, and will air via the web on www.radiovalencia.fm. It will also be available for download and podcast.
Radio Valencia DJ Malderor, who will be co-DJ-ing the special broadcast with Radio Valencia DJ Bullwinkle, recently returned from a record-purchasing trip to Paris. Hearing about the Oakland Museum gig, one Paris shop donated albums from his own reggae-dub French label, Clocktower, for the museum’s broadcast.
“Despite the language barrier, the proprietor and I connected over an abiding love of vinyl,” said Malderor. “This special DJ set will celebrate vinyl’s ability to transcend languages, and celebrate the international culture of the record collector.”
Radio Valencia is a listener-supported, community-focused radio station, located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. With a staff of over 80 volunteer DJs, and 24-hour-a-day programming, Radio Valencia is proud to be The Voice Of The Mission.
