Despite being nearly extinct in the late ’90s and early 2000s, vinyl records have made a reappearance in pop culture and in the homes of music lovers. Why are people so fascinated with this generally bulky and easily damaged music medium? Join Joliet Junior College professor and NIU alumnus Dr. Andrew Morrison to explore how the science of sound may be able to explain why vinyl has come back, and why it’s not going away. This event is free and open to the public. Food and drinks are available for purchase from Two Brothers Round House.
