Our new schedule is here for all of 2019 thanks to Patty. Please note there are two fourth Sundays in April and May because of holidays. So mark your calendars!

A media & communications and cinematic arts major at UMBC, Michelle Sanders, visited one of our shows. For her senior project, Michell produced this lovely short film called “Record Resurgence.” Vinyl has been coming back strong as we all know, even with younger generations – and we are just minutes away from campus.

The film features the Arbutus Record Show along with comments from some of our great vendors including, Dave Hoffer, Todd Simpson, Frank Ruehl, Chris Armbruster, and Juany Santos, and even 2003 UMBC alum, Carl, a collector who has been coming to the show since 2005. Yay Carl! You can copy and past the link below into our browser or watch the video by clicking here.

Thank you Michelle!

Over the holidays, we hope you had a chance to see Bohemian Rhapsody about the British super group, Queen and its charismatic singer, Freddy Mercury. Although there are a few alterations to the true story for dramatic effect, you can’t argue that Rami Malek becomes Freddy – it is uncanny. And the rest of the cast was fabulous as well. Congrats to him and the movie for the Golden Globe wins. In fact, someone did a side by side comparison at the Live Aid concert. Pretty spot on!

 

Mark your calendars for our special 4th Sunday show, May 27 – and we have some big news…!

First, mark your calendars for a special 4th Sunday show this month, May 27 at the Arbutus Fire Hall! It’s 9am – 3pm and always FREE! The gals in the kitchen will be looking up some great food for breakfast and lunch!

Now for the REALLY BIG NEWS! Finally people are discovering what we knew all along. Vinyl never went away and it is coming back strong! You might have seen Janet’s post on Facebook – she was just too excited to keep a secret for too long. Arbutus Record Show is featured in the May issue of Baltimore Magazine all about the Baltimore music scene. First the cover! “Vinyl Mania: The Record Plays On” refers to our article called “For the Record,” written by John Lewis with photography by Matt Roth. It runs on pages 108-111 and concludes on page 159. We thank John and Matt for such a great article!

We are posting each page of the article so you can read it here but you still have time to run out and get a souvenir copy of your own. We are so proud and honored to be recognized in Baltimore Magazine! 

Vendor Chris Armbruster is featured as well as our beloved Miss Freddie and dealers Catherine Bailey and Jack Skutnick. Joe Vaccarino, the expert on Baltimore music, gets a shout out too. Even some of our great customers are interviewed. Patty Reuhl has a mention selling her “snappy T-shirts.”

Our own Frank Reuhl has his quote featured and we think he sums it up pretty well:

“It’s all about the hunt,
discovering the music, and
meeting good people.”
