WESU Record Fair Rockin' Good Time

Records are making a comeback. They tend to be more affordable then other forms of music, many will argue that they sound better than digital music, and the catalog of vinyl titles spans so much that cannot be found elsewhere in any other form that records are perfect for collectors and obscure title seekers. I saw some Yugoslavian pop music from the 1970s and 1980s and a few other gems.

The music spun by the DJs was rockin', the crate diggers were happy, the food was tasty, and a good time was had by all. Kudos to WESU station manager Ben Michael for a succesful first annual Community Record Fair. A raffle helped to raise funds for the radio station which is a non-commercial nonprofit entity.

Spotted were many WESU DJs, many happy record enthusiasts, and the venerable Mr. Malcolm Tent (radio DJ @ wnhu / noisemaker / buyer and seller of records)
