Attn vinyl fans, record fairs soon in Akld, Welli

Record fair happening August 23rd in Wellington...  press release:
"A Vinyl Affair' is happening next month! It's been over a year since the last record fair in Wellington and with the vinyl revival in full swing and continuing to build momentum, there is a good buzz building around the event. With FREE ENTRY to the public, DJs spinning vinyl all afternoon, spot prizes, not to mention the chance to dig through the crates for the special gem of a record - this will be a great afternoon for music enthusiasts.

Venue and date
The event will be held at the Southern Cross, 39 Abel Tasman St, Wellington on Saturday August 23rd from 12pm - 4pm. The fair will be held in the 'guest room' which is a nice bright and spacious area just off the main bar. The event is free of charge to the public.

We are grateful for the support of local record stores Death Ray records, Rough Peel Music, Slow Boat records and Vanishing Point, as well as our host the Southern Cross, all of which are donating vouchers as spot prizes.

Local music DJs will be providing the atmosphere all afternoon, including local music critic Simon Sweetman, Skaman Selecta and more. Silent Designs and Super Colour print have generous donated their respective design and print services to the event!

To keep up-to-date, people can add themselves to the facebook event page: and anyone interested in selling records at the fair should contact Si White at for more information.

Record fair hapening in Auckland, October release

"The next vinyl collectors fair falls on the Saturday of labour weekend in October. If you have friends and relatives visiting from out of town, please, bring them with you! On at Freeman's Bay Community Hall, corner Wellington and Hepburn St, Freemans Bay, 9am to 3pm, entry fee $5.

Giveaways for the October show: New Vinyl: Lead Zeppelin 3, Year of the Cat, and a bunch of really neat DVD's including 'Cadillac Records and 'Ray', 'Doors Live', 'Moody Blues Live' 'No Direction Home' - the Bob Dylan Biopic, and 'Counting Crows Live'.
New vinyl giveaways (Maybe) Cyndi Lauper on MFSL, INX on MFSL, depending on availability.

Some lucky visitors to the March fair took home new vinyl give aways and a copy of Pearl Jam '20', the bio book of Pearl Jam's first 20 years. I expect that there will be at least ONE rock bio giveaway in October.

See the Knosti record cleaning device on continuous demo throughout the day, and ask the many experienced people at the fair your technical questions about turntable setup, cleaning and maintenance.

Music will play from vinyl sources continuously during the day, and as many genres will be covered as we can fit into the time, including Country AND Western

Your hosts are Klaus, Lothar, Peter, and Alex.
