About the Station

Playing an eclectic mix of tracks from the last several decades, all on glorious vinyl. Just as music should be.

About Bruce

Bruce David Janu's first feature documentary, Facing Sudan, hit the festival circuit in 2007 and garnered two best documentary awards. In 2008, he released a follow-up entitled, Crayons and Paper, which is currently showing on the Documentary Channel.

As a teacher by trade, he has written several books and has published articles for Illinois History Teacher.

Currently, he is working on his first novel, Lilac Wine. He also runs a blog documenting his struggle with Crohn's disease. That blog is entitled "41 Pills a Day."

Back in 2010, Janu began going through the boxes that contained his record collection. He hadn't opened them in years. He fixed a turntable and rediscovered his love of vinyl. Going through the collection, he was struck by the amount of K-Tel records he had. That's when the idea hit to start a radio station. And Vinyl Voyage was born.

K-Tel and Adventures in Vinyl

This station got its start with an idea: to play old K-Tel albums. K-Tel holds a unique place in the history of pop culture and The Vinyl Voyage celebrates that spirit with a monthly radio program called "Adventures in Vinyl."

Hosted by Bruce David Janu, this radio program highlights a single K-Tel album, streamed in its entirety. The K-Tel albums in Janu's collection span a couple of decades, the earliest from 1972. "Adventures in Vinyl" brings us back to a by-gone era when music was accompanied by hiss and pops. Only now, you don't need to get up to flip the record. We'll do it for you.

Although music streams 24/7 on The Vinyl Voyage, "The Adventures in Vinyl Radio Show" airs on Saturday mornings, 11 AM (central) and Sunday 4pm (Central). A new album will be featured every month. For the full schedule, click here.
