Radio-Active Records' Six Tons of Vinyl Has a New Home on Federal Highway

Last week, Richard Vergez unexpectedly found himself dozens of feet in the air balancing on a narrow ledge. Underneath, car after car roared by on Federal Highway as he carefully wielded a paint roller. That was no big deal, though, compared to many other Herculean acts performed within a 48-hour period. Vergez, along with colleagues Mikey Ramirez, Jasper Delaini, Natalie Smallish and a motley crew of friends and volunteers, lifted an estimated six tons of records and other bric-a-brac to move Radio-Active Records to its new home.
