Rabid fans of Radiohead likely already downloaded the bands new album "A Moon Shaped Pool" when it was released in early May.  June 17 is the official release date for the CD and LP.  On this edition of "What's On Your Turntable," WGLT's Jon Norton dropped by Waiting Room Records in uptown Normal, where owner Jared Alcorn was spinning an advance copy of the album.  He gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up. 

Alcorn also said Waiting Room Records is one of the few shops in all of Illinois participating in the Radiohead "Moon Shaped Pool" Live Stream June 17.  All day, the store will air  XL Recordings streaming of the entire album as well as music curated by the band, including a live stream performance by Radiohead at 12:00 Noon.  Alcorn said more information on the streaming is available at http://www.amoonshapedpool.com/livefrom/

Jon Norton is the audio director at WGLT and WCBU. He also is host of All Things Considered every weekday.
