The Vinyl Experience is a radio show all about LP records and the culture of analog recording. Dubbed from original vinyl on collectors Hi-Fi gear, New York radio host Paul Cavalconte tells a new story with records each week–your story, and mine.

Host Paul Cavalconte has collected and played records since Scruffy The Tugboat on a yellow plastic 7-inch 78 rpm record. And that was last year. No seriously, he was 4. He took it into the bathtub every Saturday night. It was a real clean record. At 19 he became a DJ in New York City on WFUV. At 52, he also became a DJ in New York City on WFUV.

Below are the front and back covers of artist Rutherford Chang’s The White Album released in a limited edition of 800 copies, each included a 24″x24″ poster featuring images of other original covers displayed in the exhibit.

The cover art was comprised of composite overlays of the weathered and defaced originals displayed in the exhibit, many of which were doctored by their young owners who used the pristine surface as a canvas for messages and doodles.
