    “Vinylmania may have closed the shop doors, but it’s legacy lives on.”

    Owner Charlie Grappone opened the Vinylmania’s doors in 1978. He opened the store with a sparse selection of Rock records, but after crowds from the Paradise Garage started showing up, he realized his market was with the house heads. Vinylmania quickly became the goto spot for house in NYC, eventually spawning a record label under the same name, and it’s legacy began. Sadly Vinylmania closed its doors in 2007 after almost 3 decades of business. Charlie has since moved his inventory into Downtown 161, a record distributor in Lower Manhattan, where he opens one day a week for a select group of shoppers.

    DailySession is proud to bring Charlie Grappone and the Vinylmania crew to you every Tuesday with “The Vinylmania Sound Library” show from the Vinyl Mania Warehouse. The shop might have closed, but they’ll be bringing you all the music you loved when it was open.
