Student record sale set

The past may help the future of the student radio station operated by the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools.

The 13th Annual 88.1 Record Show will take place from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19 in the Salem High School cafeteria. All proceeds from the sale of thousands of vinyl records available, along with CDs, import-only releases, t-shirts, posters and other collectibles will benefit the nationally-recognized and award-winning student radio station.

The show will also feature special giveaways and door prizes in addition to a wide variety of vendors. More than 400 people attended the show in 2020 and organizers hope to build on that success this year, based on the resurgence of interest in vinyl records.

“We've worked hard to create a record show that's perfect for the longtime collector and for those that are new to vinyl. It's amazing to see so many music fans, from all generations, together in one place,” said Emma Johnston, program director for 88.1 The Park.  

Admission to the 88.1 The Park record show, during normal show hours, is $3. Collectors looking to get an early start to their shopping can gain early admission between 9 and 10 a.m. for $5. Students at Canton, Plymouth and Salem high schools will receive free admission with a student ID.

All of the proceeds will benefit 88.1 The Park, and will help the station to continue serving the community with unique programming and broadcast training for students. 

Salem High School is located at 46181 Joy Road the corner of Joy and Canton Center Road.
