FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CROSLEY RADIO UNVEILS
EXCLUSIVE RECORD STORE DAY DISNEY TURNTABLE
AT CES THIS WEEK!
RECORD STORE DAY 2016 IS OFFICIALLY SET FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 16TH
After the wide success of 2014’s exclusive Peanuts turntable, Record Store Day will follow up their continuing comraderie with Crosley Radio, an industry leader in the vinyl resurgence, for a joint collaboration with Disney to create the Mickey Mouse Crosley Cruiser turntable for 2016.
The piece is set to be unveiled today at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas at booth #14835 in Central Hall.
Record Store Day co-founders Michael Kurtz and Carrie Colliton will be attending the product launch and will be available for press on Friday, January 8.

RSD’s Kurtz effuses, “Record Store Day couldn’t be happier to work with Crosley on a Disney turntable designed for young kids. It’s how I, and just about every vinyl fan I know, got introduced to the love of playing records,”
Since Record Store Day’s inception in 2008, RSD’s goal has always been “A way to celebrate and promote to the media and general public that many independently owned brick and mortar record stores were surviving and thriving,” said Scott Bingaman, President of Deer Park Distributors, which services independent record stores all over the United States as Crosley’s exclusive U.S. distributor.
As for the piece, one can expect Crosley’s iconic Cruiser turntable’s awesome features combined with the fun of Disney:
• Whimsical, colorful artwork of Mickey and Pluto on the outside and inside
• Belt-driven three-speed turntable plays 33s, 45s, and 78s
• Built in dynamic stereo speakers for music anywhere
• Headphone jack for private listening
• RCA output, AUX input
This bright and magical turntable will only be available for purchase at independent record stores, but swing by the Crosley booth at CES 2016 and come see everyone’s favorite mouse before it hits store shelves! Exclusively available starting April 16, 2016 at $109.95 MSRP in Q2 2016.
At the front lines of the Vinyl Revolution, Crosley Radio has its roots deeply seeded in history and its eyes turned toward the future. From its revolutionary line of turntables built to bring the love of analog music to a new generation, to its new series of high fidelity units with the discerning listener in mind, Crosley Radio seeks to bring new life to a classic medium. In turntables, jukeboxes, radios, and all things vintage-inspired audio, count on Crosley to take you there.
