Wow, what a show, our Fall record extravaganza was an amazing success ! We had many local and long distance buyers in attendance and the quality level of the records was amazing. The overseas buyers in particular spoke highly of the high quality and reasonable prices of the record selection on display at the show. Both buyers and sellers seemed quite happy with the show results as it was the best event we have had in several years in terms of attendance and sales.
The improved lighting and new public address system at the North Austin Event Center were both well liked by all participants although we had an ongoing problem with the volume level of the new PA and had just about got it sorted out when the show ended. Oh well, at least we know now how to deal with it for the next time and speaking of the next time, the dates for our next show will be October 25 - 26 - 27 2013. There will be no Spring show in 2013 while I attend to some grandparent duties in Japan.
Sadly the Fall New York City WFMU show had to be canceled due to the big Super Sandy storm and they are now trying to reschedule their event so check with them for updates.
The very nice article run by the Austin Chronicle in October will remain posted here on the website so all interested can enjoy the photo of Augie Meyer (Doug Sahm's keyboard whiz), Huey Meaux (Texas' infamous music producer), John Koenig (Goldmine Magazine) and myself from 1985.

The Austin Record Convention is the largest sale of recorded music in the USA. There is more music and related memorabilia available here, at one time, than anywhere else. Ranging from the 78's of the 1930s to the latest compact discs of today, over one million 78s, 45s, LPs, CDs, cassettes, posters and collectibles (probably even a few 8-track tapes!) are in the auditorium. Over 300 different dealers from all over the USA and Europe are spread out over 50,000 square feet of floor space. The show is so big that to see everything takes most of the weekend, so if you're in a hurry we have tables where customers can post search announcements in hopes of locating specific items.
The show brings together collectors and dealers from all over the world for a weekend of activity in Austin. The event started in 1981 and has been held twice a year, in the spring and fall, ever since. It has grown steadily over the years and now uses all available floor space at the event center. The location in Austin, "Live Music Capital of the World", is a beautiful city that is great fun to visit has aided in the popularity of the event. If you attend the show be sure to save some energy for an evening visit to any of the many clubs around town and check out the live music scene for which Austin is world famous.
