We are delighted to announce that for the first time, those stations that go vinyl only for the full 24 hours on April 22nd for our 2nd Annual Vinylthon, will be presented with a very special award!

The Golden Slipmat Award is an actual slipmat that will be sent to all stations that pull off this remarkable feat! We are also grateful for Glowtronics for their official sponsorship of this award. The slipmat is a professional grade custom slipmat, made from only the highest quality 21oz felt material, with high-quality full color sublimation printing on both sides.

The rules to receive this award are as follows:

1. A college or high school radio station must have registered to participate in Vinylthon 2017 (it’s free).

2. Any pre-recorded music to be played from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM (station’s local time) on April 22nd must be played from vinyl only.

3. Stations can still play imaging and also pre-recorded documentary/speech material (such as our Vinylthon feature) during this time – but all pre-recorded music must be from vinyl.

4. Stations can still have live performances and interviews from bands during the 24 hours.

5. At the end of the day, both the faculty advisor and a student involved with management (such as Station Manager or Program Director for example)  must verify via an online form to confirm that these rules were adhered to. Then you will receive the award you have earned!

Last year six stations went the whole 24 hours – this year, who will join them in the eternal ranks of glory?
