As part of his role as official ambassador of Record Store Day, Jack White is opening a special record-your-own vinyl booth at his Third Man Records' Novelties Lounge in Nashville. Previewed in a demo video with Brendan Benson, fans will be able to use a 1947 Voice-o-Graph to record up to two minutes of audio which will be cut to a six-inch phonograph disc.

"Actively venturing to your local record shop is one of those honors and privileges in this life that we just shouldn't take for granted," said White in a statement on the Third Man site. "Certain beautiful experiences can only happen in the environment of a record store and I just thought that nothing could drive that point home more than a one-of-a-kind machine that lets you not only record your own vinyl record, but send it to anyone, anywhere in the world to share a song, poem, or private message with. I know those warm, scratchy tones send tingles up (and sometimes down) my spine. Even if you aren't instrumentally inclined, you could hold up an iPhone playing a song and sing along with the music and combine the best of all worlds tangible, digital and romantic."
