The wildly popular Charleston Record Expo returns to the Monster Music parking lot on Saturday, March 24th, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

People are rediscovering, or discovering for the first time, the satisfaction of the warmer, fuller sound on vinyl, not to mention the fun that goes along with the artwork, discovering unknown gems, and playing records with friends. But for many, vinyl never went away.

Vendors at the upcoming event hail from all over – mostly in the Carolinas but some are coming from as far away as Detroit and Pensacola, Florida. Their collections will largely consist of LPs, but there will be 45s, 12” singles, as well as collectable CDs, DVDs, magazines, and artwork. There will be $1 records, $100 records, and everything in between. It’s not just for collectors, it’s for anyone who appreciates listening to music the old fashioned way.

Admission is free and open to the public. The better the turnout, the more the event can expand in the coming years - so bring a group!
