WFMU Record Fair Metropolitan Pavilion NYC
When I originally wrote this post, the WFMU Record Fair was held in the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan. Twice a year it was simply the best place to get records, whatever you’re looking for. All price ranges were covered from the truly expensive collectible, to the cheap common everyday, and all points in between. And of course you could buy merchandise from the station (and cheap records too) to help defray its operating costs . The station had a DJ spinning live, and live bands also played. Like all fairs there was also food and for this one beer too, if I remember correctly.
It is now held only once a year, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
