    Hello Jenny. The new recordings have not been coming out in vinyl for many years, but used copies of some the older recordings from the 1960s, 1970s and sometimes 1980s are floating about on places like Ebay and some specialty record stores. I personally have an ample collection of Cuban vinyl but would never consider selling.
    Some of the new music played on FTIOM isn’t even available on CD or digitally, much less vinyl, which is another reason to check out the program.
