WILL hosts annual sale used
WILL radio's 12th annual Vintage Vinyl sale takes place from 8 a.m.
to 7 p.m. June 26 at Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana.
Thousands of used records, tapes and CDs will be offered for sale, with
most LPs selling for only $1. Used stereo equipment, including CD players,
turntables and speakers, will be offered at bargain prices.
Sale coordinator Brian Robertson said the sale includes a selection
of vintage 78s, videotapes and even some eight-track tapes, along with
record cases and cassette holders.
"Local residents have been extremely generous during their spring
cleaning, as always, so there'll be collectors' items galore,"
said WILL-FM program director Jake Schumacher, who is assisting Robertson
with sorting and pick-ups.
All proceeds from Vintage Vinyl benefit public radio stations WILL-AM
(580) and WILL-FM (90.9, 101.1 in Champaign-Urbana, 106.5 Danville).
