ATTN: Record collectors, fall date set for Orlando Record and CD Show this October


Last weekend, I made it by the all-vinyl garage sale of "Dan the Record Man" over on Edgewater, and many friends were bristled that I did not share this intel before it was too late. The truth is, I didn't find out about the sale until the morning of, when a friend who is Much Better At This texted the heads up. I dragged myself out of bed to go lurk the cardboard boxes of primarily pop, jazz and rock records (plus a mass of $1 bins). 

While there, Dan tipped me off that the fall version of the Orlando Record and CD Show at the Central Florida Fairgrounds has a date set for Sunday, Oct. 18, and he said he'd be out there with what was left from this sale, plus a ton more. If you're not hip to this humongous vinyl-lovers affair, the Record and CD Show features a monstrous mash of records, with thousands of discs, out-of-town vendors, rare and out-of-print vinyl, imports, plus the necessities you need to fill out your collection. It is a sincere wonder if turntables turn your world.

Admission is $3 to get in and peruse the offerings, but if you show up early, the early bird admission is $10 and gets you in at 7:30 a.m. - two and a half hours before the rest of the collectors.
