With the holiday season quickly approaching, WMUA 91.1fm offers the greater Amherst community an opportunity to find the perfect gift for the audiophiles in your life. On December 6th, WMUA will host our 1st Annual Record Fest, featuring vinyl vendors and labels from all over New England and the East Coast selling quality records, CDs, movies and ephemera. A wide selection of new and used genres and price ranges will be offered, so whether you're a casual listener looking to dust off the old turntable or a vinyl enthusiast searching for that obscure, out of print title, there will be something to satisfy your tastes. And as our gift to you, there will be free, live musical entertainment and DJ sets throughout the day, including performances by electronic artist Eric Hnatow, post-punk from Rabbit Rabbit, psychedelic pop courtesy of Brown Recluse Sings, and drums and drones from Baltimore rockers Teeth Mountain.
The 1st Annual Record Fest will take place on December 6th from 10am - 3pm in the Cape Cod Lounge of the Student Union Center at UMass Amherst. Proceeds from this event will benefit WMUA 91.1fm, UMass Amherst's not-for-profit student and community-run music, sports and news radio station. Give the gift of hi-fi music to your friends, family or yourself this holiday season, and support college radio in the process!
