WSIU 2016 Classic Vinyl Sale is This Saturday

Carbondale, Ill. – Reporters, photographers, and camera crews are invited to cover the 9th Annual WSIU Classic Vinyl Sale taking place for one day only on Saturday, September 17 from 9am to 5pm in WSIU-TV Studio A, located in the Communications Building, Room 1065, 1100 Lincoln Drive on the SIU Carbondale campus.

Suggested parking lots are 46 and 40, located on the southwest side of the Communications Building. These are the parking lots typically used by campus guests attending performances at McLeod Theater.

NOTE:  Shoppers line up early to find the best collectible albums and other bargains, so 8:45am would be a good time to arrive to take photos, shoot video of the crowd, perhaps interview a shopper.

Items for sale include vintage vinyl records, including collectibles, stereo equipment, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, audio cassettes, and more.
