The 12 Inch Show

Starting the new year off right… January 01, 2023 marks the re-debut of The 12 Inch Show. Re-debut? With a little twisting and tinkering, we’ve found a way to tell the story of the 12 inch single, which made its debut in commercial record shops in 1975. Each Sunday for three hours between 10 pm and 1 am, The 12 Inch Show will spotlight one year, and we’ll play all the year’s most popular 12 inch singles, as well as some non-extended surprises. This is a non-narrated show, but each episode has been meticulously hand-crafted to bring a knowing smile to the faces of people who lived through the era, and maybe a few head scratches from the youngsters. The countdown begins Sunday, January 01, 2023 at 10:00 p.m. E.S.T. and continues until May.
