Drop The Needle:
The Vinyl Days of Toronto
Where did Torontonians go to buy or hear music in the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s? Which local radio stations – college, mainstream or other – got people excited about music scenes throughout the city? Sam The Record Man opens on Yonge Street. Maestro Fresh Wes performs on Much Music, local DJs regularly pack the house at the Dance Cave. This exhibit displays the sights and sounds that surround vinyl culture (from production to consumption) from days past through its resurgence with today’s youth.
