With the success of A Charlie Brown Christmas in 1965 and It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown in 1966, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving was the third holiday special which aired on CBS in 1973. It even won an Emmy Award the following year. What added to the charm of these specials, besides the beloved characters and scripts by Charles M. Schulz, was the brilliance of the soundtrack, composed and performed by Vince Guaraldi and his musicians. The music set the mood and was very sophisticated for a cartoon. Here is just a sampling:

Start the fall season hunting for great music treasures at our show this Sunday, September 16!

“Records Say It Best!”

It was so fantastic seeing our wonderful vendors and customers at the August show after the July summer break! The hall was packed with many old friends and new customers too. Since the Ravens aren’t playing this Sunday, it’s a great day to come see us at our September 16 show at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department Hall. As always, admission is FREE! Our hours are 9 am – 3 pm (but we know some of the best deals can be made a little before then!) The lovely ladies will be serving breakfast and lunch in the kitchen. The food is great and the prices so reasonable!

We really enjoyed meeting Tim who found this sweet T-shirt in a small record shop during his many travels. VINYL IS FOREVER! So true!

Record hunting is a wonderful thing for couples to share together!

And of course there were may Elvis and Aretha and sitings. Long live the King and Queen! And yes, Aretha sure had “Moxie!”

Last year we had a chance to talk to two of our great vendors who work together as a team  – Bob (left) and Evan (right). They joined forces about two years ago when Evan found a treasure trove of albums – almost 11,000 records! – from one collector and they decided to purchase the whole lot. We discovered that Evan is a contemporary jazz lover (like Paul Hardcastle and Pat Metheny) and Bob is a HUGE Beatles fan. As they said, you never know what you are going to find [at the Arbutus Record Show] or who you are going to meet. These two are great guys – always cheerful and friendly, and they come to the show with wonderful music finds! So stop by their booth this Sunday and say “hi” while looking through their selection of albums and other goodies.

We thank our wonderful vendors, like Bob and Evan, and our patrons. Looks like it’s going to be another great year in 2018! See you this Sunday!

We would like to send condolences and prayers the family of Marty Stuber. We lost our dear friend Marty this past Thursday, December 14. She will be missed by all her friends, especially those who chatted with her and hung out at Jack’s tables at both the Lancaster Record Show as well as at the Arbutus Record & CD Show. Marty was our dealer Jack Supplee’s sweetheart.

Al Ercolani IMG_7556 small

We want to give a special shoutout to a great friend of the show and longtime vendor. Al Ercolani Jr had come back to the show after a long absence. But that kind heart of his needed some support and in October he had triple bypass surgery. He posts on his FB page that he is doing well. We wish Al a speedy recovery and hope to see him soon!
