On a warm and sunny Saturday, we had about twelve vendors and individuals presenting their ware for the public to peruse and purchase. Most vinyl sales were brisk, both used and new LP’s, CD’s, and even cassette tapes were available. Lots of vintage gear was available too. The beautiful weather kept the big crowds away but there was a steady stream of participants. An enjoyable time for like-minded people interested in good music.
It was one of those special spring days for a drive down to Annadale from Baltimore. Luckily, this time the traffic on 495 was tolerable. Dave Raden’s house is on a magical lot with one thousand azaleas just past their peak but still beautiful. The main club business was to announce the June 25th Summer Vinyl Event at the Garrett Park Town Hall. Past events have been successful for the sellers and for attracting new club members. There is always a lively turnout. Our club members have been treated to the evolution… Read More

John Gatski still gives away a few special CDs at every meeting that he collects on… Read More
It was a bitter cold early Saturday when I headed down to Rockville from Baltimore. A snowstorm gave just a glancing blow with barely an inch of snow. Roads were clear and dry, making travel easy. This month’s meeting, hosted by Ken Wolff of SOTA Tutntables and Command Performance’s Jon Archer, highlighted the new Nova VI and the Comet VI turntables.
