Vinyl collectors, mark your calendars for November 10th and 11th when low power FM radio station WSWO will hold its annual record sale. A wealth of music will be available for sale in an event that benefits the community station.
Local sponsors have donated various items for raffle prizes to raise additional money for the station, including a new USB digital turntable and record care accessories from Omega Music in downtown Dayton.
Known as “Ultimate Oldies Radio,” WSWO 97.5 & 101.1FM airs material that charted during the first 3 decades of rock and roll and is accented with jazz, R&B and cross over religious & country artists, also broadcasting Wayne Warrior sporting events and community based religious programming. The record sale is the nonprofit station’s biggest fundraiser of the year; the rest of its budget is fleshed out by listener donations and sponsorships from local businesses.
WSWO is still taking music donations through November 1st of gently used 45’s, LP’s, CD’s & cassettes (no 78’s) as well as working turntables & jukeboxes. Donations can be taken to The Heights Cafe’ also located in the Huber Center, or arrangements can be made through the station.
