Crosley Radio Announces Star Wars Turntable for 10th Annual Record Store Day
Crosley Radio, a leading audio brand since launching its first radio in the 1920s, today announces a Star Wars turntable in celebration of the 10th annual Record Store Day, and the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope. The limited-edition record player will be available only at participating independent record stores on Saturday, April 22.
“Star Wars has been and will continue to be a staple in the entertainment industry that all generations love, making it an obvious choice for the theme of this year’s only turntable,” said director of marketing for Crosley Radio, Jason Menard. “We’re excited to see this unique turntable resonate with vinyl fans of all ages.”
Star Wars imagery will appear on the outside and inside of the special edition Crosley Cruiser Deluxe, a portable three-speed turntable that retails for $109.95, featuring pitch control and bluetooth capability. Designed to reflect the stylings of yesteryear, the Cruiser includes modern conveniences like dynamic full-range stereo speakers, a headphone jack and RCA outputs. Imagery celebrates the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, and is based off of iconic poster art from the original release in May 1977. This is the fourth year that Crosley has released an exclusive Record Store Day turntable.
