Asbury Park Record Show 02.24.08

Well, the second record show of the year was the most successful. There were about 10-12 vendors this time, lots of vinyl, a great brunch, plus Pete Pederson’s famous Bloody Mary’s. I was able to score a load of 45s, plus my man Greg (of Highland Park Record Sale Fame) hooked me up with a nice Horace Andy Lp. It was good to see everyone out, and there was a great representation by the Asbury Park 45 Sessions Crew, as well as some heads from Brooklyn and beyond. People actually came out of the wood work for this one. Fun was had by all, and of course we will be doing it all again next month. It looks like it’s going to be a monthly event, all the way through the Summer. In fact, we’re trying to orchestrate a weekend indoor/ outdoor Record Show and Garage Sale (or flea market) for sometime in June. Please stay tuned to FMF for details. A big shout out to Brian from 365 45’s for coming through with a really great load of records. Looking forward to the next batch!

Cool Hands Luke digging and looking cool.
