  • WFMU Record Fair

    Every year radio station WFMU runs a fund raising record fair that is arguably the best in the country. It was moved to a very nice new venue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Tons of dealers and serious buyers. This is not your basic monthly show where you see the same vendors. This is quality stuff. In fact the dealers change over the course of the 3 days that the fair runs. A couple of years ago I watched a collector drop about $15,000 on pristine OG Blue Notes!

    Lots of great restaurants and activity nearby. Bring wads of cash. You'll need it.

    Show runs from April 29th to May 1st.

    Who's in?

    I definitely could be persuaded. I haven't gone in several years. Nothing like that smell of musty old vinyl!

      Sounds interesting. Not too far for me either. All genres represented well or this event specializes in specific genres?
      Kronos Sparta -> Trinity Phono -> Trinity Pre -> CH Precision A1 -> Magico S7s

        Everything is there. Rare jazz, rock, prog rock, r'n'b - pretty much everything under the sun. Classical doesn't account for much at these shows but I'm sure there are bargains if you know what you are looking for.

      This is spooky but I just got an email from the IFC on 6th and Waverly and they will be showing a documentary on WFMU. I'd never heard of the station. In case anyone is interested:

      Are you going for the early admission, Ken? I went a few years ago, scored some good stuff, man.

        Bill I am taking the day off and heading up for early admission. If you want to meet up let me know. I will introduce you to a jazz dealer that will rock your world.

        Great brisket over in Williamsburg as well.
