Plymouth/Canton's 88.1 The Park set to host annual Record Show on Saturday, February 21st
WSDP-FM 88.1 The Park, the student radio station for the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, will present their sixth annual Record Show on Saturday February 22, from 10am to 4pm at the Salem High School Cafeteria.
Collectors will find thousands of vinyl records, CD's, import only releases, t-shirts, posters, and other collectibles. The show will also feature special giveaways and door prizes.
Last year's show was the station's largest with over 230 people attending and 42 dealer tables. Early reservations indicate that this year's show will be even bigger. Much of the success of the show can be tied to the resurgence of interest in vinyl records.
"The record show is my favorite 88.1 event. There's literally every genre of music waiting to be dug up, and it's great to be around people who love music," said Elena Bongiovanni, 88.1 The Park's Production Director.
Admission is $3. Collectors can get early admission between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. for $5. Students at Canton, Plymouth and Salem High Schools will receive free admission with a student ID. All of the proceeds will benefit 88.1 The Park, and will help the station to continue serving the community with unique programming and broadcast training for students. The record show is one of the station's main fundraisers each year.
Interested dealers can contact 88.1 The Park's Station Manager, Bill Keith, at 734-416-7732. Eight foot tables can be reserved for $30 each.
Salem High School is located at 46181 Joy Road in Canton Michigan (corner of Joy and Canton Center). The Salem High School Cafeteria is located on the first floor, just inside the main entrance to the school.
88.1 The Park is staffed by students at Canton, Plymouth and Salem High Schools. The station has been serving the community since February 14, 1972. You can find out more about the station at www.881ThePark.com.
