Vintage Vinyl Sale!!!

WUKY, UK’s NPR station, is hosting its 3rd Annual Vintage Vinyl Sale and we have added some extra events to make this Sale special.  The Vintage Vinyl Sale has become one of WUKY’s most anticipated events and takes its participants back in time where music was more than popping in some headphones and jamming to your favorite tunes, it was an event where you gathered around the record player and experienced the raw talent of an artist.  The Vintage Vinyl Sale kicks off on Wednesday, April 22nd at the Habitat for Humanities ReStore on Southland Drive with a preview party from 5:30 to 7:30.  Tickets will be available at the door for $20.  $10 of that will act as a voucher for the purchase of items during the sale.  The public portion of the sale begins April 23rd-25th from 10am – 7pm each day. 

Special Events: 

Thursday, April 23rd:  Everyone is invited and encouraged to come in costume from their favorite era.  Pictures will be taken and votes will be made as to the best costume.  WUKY will offer up some awesome swag and prizes! 

Friday, April 24th:  Find us the “Most Outrageous” Album Cover.  Treat this sale like a needle in a haystack.  Not only are there treasures available for your collection, but treasures that you may not even be looking for.  We are asking individuals to find the “Most Outrageous” Album Cover.  WUKY will offer up some awesome swag and prizes! 

Saturday, April 25th:  Don’t just show up to find some of your favorite artists’ albums, but perform some of the hits of your favorite artists.  WUKY and the ReStore will host a karaoke contest from 4pm – 6pm.  The contest will offer you the chance to showcase your talents in front of other music lovers.   Yet again, WUKY will offer up some awesome swag and prizes! 

In recent years, vinyl has surged back into the mainstream with many current artists producing their latest projects on vinyl.  There’s no argument that vinyl, with its grooves and pops and imperfections, sounds a lot different (some would say better) than the digitally-sampled perfection of MP3s and CDs.  WUKY’s Vintage Vinyl sale is your opportunity to experience the magic of vinyl once again and build your own collection or maybe add to treasures you already have at prices that can’t be beat.
