With more than 20 vendors from throughout New England and the tri-state area selling new and used music in all formats, the 88.1 FM WESU community record fair has become a cherished tradition, attracting a diverse crowd of new and old record collectors.
The WESU Spring 2015 Record Fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 28 in Beckham Hall. Browse new and used CDs, records, music-related apparel, books, WESU merchandise and more.
WESU DJs will be spinning records live throughout the day to inspire your crate digging.
“Each vendor will be offering their own unique mix of genres and formats, so there is surely something for every type of collector,” said Ben Michael, WESU general manager. “So come on out in search of that one record you’ve been hunting for and support your favorite community radio station in the process!”
WESU also is accepting donations for the fundraising event.
