The Vinyl Dream - Part 1

Producer Dana Berry has always dreamed of putting out a vinyl LP. Well, the time has come. Join him as his band, Night Herons, goes through the process of making a vinyl record including mixing, mastering, artwork, finding the right pressing plant, lacquer cutting and test pressing. Listen in on the studio sessions and hear interviews with everyone involved. It’s part “how-to” guide but it’s mainly a fun ride through the final stages of making a vinyl record. And in our indie record store segment, Dave Whitaker checks out his new local shop, Peoples Records, in Arcata, CA.
