Allentown Record Fair –A slight return
Well It has been 4 years since I ventured out to Allentown for the 45 only fair. I arrived last night and bought my first record within 5 minutes of arrival then went to bed.
I am staying at America’s Best Inn, which is certainly less than luxurious, but it’s where a majority of the dealers are staying. So 10-12 rooms have their doors open for business, and you just navigate back and forth, to and fro, talking shit, sharing jokes and going through boxes upon boxes of 45s.
There is also a scaled down version of a similar scene going on at the Howard Johnson hotel
No incredible finds yet, but the fair proper is still a couple of days away...
Extolling the virtues of Raga-Glam to the disbelieving
The demand for hotel rooms is huge this time of year in Allentown
