You can take part in our monthly online Album Club and Pub Quiz meet-ups by joining our international Classic Album Sundays Community at Patreon. For £10 a month, our Members have access to two monthly events: The Album Club & The Classic Album Pub Quiz. Once you have joined, you will also be able to vote for which album features as Album of the Month.
If you can’t make the live stream don’t worry, members will also receive a private filmed presentation by Colleen in case they cannot attend the actual event.
Join us for the Pub Quiz on Friday July 9th and the Album Club on Sunday July 18th!
We offer a range of tiers, opportunities, events and rewards with monthly subscriptions starting at £3 for a Supporter to enable us to continue to create and distribute the content we share free of charge such as podcasts, playlists, written features and videos.
The Album Club is like a book club hosted by Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy as a meet-up on Zoom. Each month we feature a different album as voted upon by our Members. Colleen sends a relevant ‘Musical Lead-Up Playlist’ to Members the morning of the Album Club to give musical context to our featured Album of the Month. Then we meet up on Zoom at 8pm and Colleen tells the story behind the album. We then listen to the album in real-time together but on our own formats and devices at home. After the album finishes we have a discussion amongst the Members, and sometimes with special guests such as the authors of the forthcoming book ‘Halo: The Story Behind Depeche Mode’s Violator and Matt Johnson of The The who told the story behind and answered Member questions about The The’s classic album Mind Bomb.
The Classic Album Pub Quiz is held on a Friday at 8pm and is a different take on a regular music pub quiz. Colleen has created it so its almost like a podcast – fun, interactive and educational. The Pub Quiz is split into two themed halves (past themes have included The Concept Album, The Golden Age of Hip Hop, Laurel Canyon, Soundtracks & Scores, Black Lives Matter, 80’s Synth Pop… you get the idea!). It has been a lot of fun getting to know our Members, and also to see their competitive side. And of course, the Pub Quiz is BYOB.
Although we are asking for our community’s support, any of which will be greatly appreciated, we are offering value: a way to connect and share with other music fans, a means to discover and learn more about music and sound systems, and a platform to experience music differently.
Thanks so much for your continued support and we hope to ’see you’ at one of our online events! Thanks for listening.
