Mark your calendars for October 23, 24 and 25. Those are the dates for the WFMU Record Fair in New York. This is probably the top record show in the New York Metropolitan area, attracting dealers from all over the country. We’ve been known to occasionally take a table: Actually we’ve done it twice, including last year for just one day. We haven’t decided about this year as a seller, but we’ll probably be there in some capacity and will keep you posted. If you’re a seller and want to reserve a table, our advice is to do so fairly soon, since the room has a tendency to fill to capacity, particularly on the second day of the event. If you want more information, or are interested in signing up, you can just click here for a link to the WFMU web site.
Jazz Collector must be getting popular: I now find myself on a list getting various and sundry press releases on jazz and vinyl topics. I will pass on to you those that I think will be of interest, such as this: On Saturday, July 11, there will be a Record Fair in Philadelphia at the Institute of Contemporary Art. I can’t vouch for the quality of collectibles, and I won’t be able to attend myself, but it is always fun to go to a record show and hunt for bargains. This one opens at 9 a.m. and offers free admission after 11 a.m. For details, you can click here.
