    Hey listeners!

    We at WVKR love physical music. Like, a lot – you can kinda tell by the thousands of albums that line the walls of our studio. We also think that independent businesses are p cool and v important! So we figured, why not combine these two loves and have ourselves a good ol’ fashioned record fair???


    WVKR will be hosting its first annual Record Fair in Vassar’s College Center this Saturday from 10AM to 4PM. Vendors from far and wide will be selling LPs, 45s, CDs, and, who knows, maybe even cassettes – MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC! So stop by, take a peek, and go home with a bag of good stuff!

    Check the event page here for any updates and to announce your arrival, social media style~~

    With <3,
