Frank and Janet IMG_9164

This year, we get to share some of Father’s Day with you for our June 20th show. It is extra special because our favorite dad and the man responsible (along with his better half, Janet) for our great show, Frank, will be making a brief appearance after beating back Covid! We had a great show last month, but we missed Frank and his great tables of music —along with his expertise. Thanks to great doctors and lots of prayers and good wishes from our record show family, he is home and on the mend! We look forward to seeing him  and he will be happy to see all of you! Masks are highly recommended for the safety of our dealers and customers.

The show runs 9 am – 3 pm, always FREE and always FREE and ample parking. We have to wear our masks for a bit longer but July will be coming and we will have a special show! Stayed tuned!

Summer and the cicadas are here! Join us at our special 4th Sunday show, May 23, ahead of Memorial Weekend!

Our fearless leaders, Janet and Frank!

Spring is finally here! Deals will be blooming at our next show, Sunday, April 18, at the Arbutus Fire Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. Admission is FREE and parking is FREE! This is our normal third weekend of the month since the spring holidays were early this year. We still have to wear our masks in compliance with the state law and safety for everyone. Please continue to MASK UP,  socially distance, and bring your own food and drink. 

Last month’s show was AMAZING with such a great crowd all day long. It was also a wonderful opportunity to get some great photos as well of lots of the great finds at the show!

We had the opportunity to meet Lou Vlangas, who partners with our wonderful announcer, Derek Shaw at the Keystone Record Collectors show, the Pennsylvania Music Expo, every month (usually the weekend before the Arbutus show). Lou is the show coordinator, announcer and does the table reservations. At our show in March he showed up with a gem! The first 45 record every pressed, recorded by Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup – and it’s even color vinyl!

It’s no “trick” but a great “treat” to present our show on Sunday, October 18th! Mark your calendars for the November 15 and December 20 shows!

Fall is here and soon Halloween will be upon us! Come by the show at the Arbutus Fire Department Hall from 9 am – 3 pm. NO admission and plenty of FREE parking! We have our wonderful vendors  back and continue to adhere to COVID safety precautions. Please wear your mask at all times (which means covering the mouth AND nose) and remember to socially-distance. The tables are socially-distanced in the hall for your safety too. 

We look forward to doing all our remaining shows this year. So it’s not too early to mark your calendars for the NOVEMBER 15 and DECEMBER 20 shows!

Last month, along with our great finds, we celebrated Mr. Jack’s 90th birthday a few days early! We remember when we had a party because he said he was retiring. But you can’t keep a good man down. He’s has more energy than most people half his age!

On a sadder note, we lost guitarist extraordinaire, Eddie Van Halen early in October. Another giant of the music world gone too soon at 65 from cancer. The legendary guitarist, songwriter,  and co-founder of the 80s rock group, Van Halen, he is considered one of the most talented and ground-breaking guitarists of all time. With hit after hit, including “Jump,” “Panama,” and “Hot for Teacher” to name a few, the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Fun fact: Van Halen contributed the guitar solo in Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” from Jackson’s monster hit album, “Thriller.”

No April showers but a shower of music collectibles! Join us this Sunday, April 17!

Spring has finally arrived! Join us this Sunday for our April 17th show at the Arbutus Fire Volunteer Fire Department for tons of music collectibles and deals from our vendors. The show is always FREE with breakfast and lunch offered for sale as you peruse the many booths filled with treasures and great finds. We are open from 9 am -3 pm and look forward to seeing you there!

Our pre-Easter holiday show last month was hoppin’ with a great crowd and some interesting finds. “Bunnies” could be found as well as soundtracks to some childhood TV favorites, Beatles and a whole lot of KISS imports. Russ Katz came with his company, The Vinyl Revivers. He explained and demonstrated the clever system he created to clean those precious vinyl records.
