Numero Group limited 45s and pop up shop for Record Store Day

Chicago's Numero Group label are setting up a temporary record store and radio station again this year for Record Store Day (21 April), and pressing up two limited 45s and a radio station compilation on CD and LP.

Numero has pressed the two 45s of Chicago soul jingles in runs of 100 each, which will only be available in store. One is a Richard Pegue production made for Ember Furniture and featuring Rotary Connection's Sidney Barnes, the other includes two tracks from a 7" recorded at the Tel-Fi Studios for Greyhound in 1969.

Also released by Numero for Record Store Day is a radio station compilation, WTNG 89.9FM: Solid Bronze. WTNG broadcast temporarily from the pop up shop last year, and will be on the airwaves around the Empty Bottle in Chicago again this year.

All Numero RSD records will be on sale at the shop at 1035 North Western Avenue, Chicago, 9am–6pm. More details on the 45s, radio station compilation, and record store.
