Swapsity does it again! The Ultimate Vinyl Swap

Yes, I dig Lps.  Yes, I dig the environment.  Swapsity suggests that you can dig both... at once. 

This Friday to Sunday (April 13th-15th) Swapsity will host a media swap as part of the Toronto Green Living Show at the Exhibition Place. 

It's simple - If you have 10 Records that you no longer dig, bring em in, get a ticket for ''media items', and voila!  Leave with 10 things that other people have brought.  It isn't limited to LP's, as CD's, DVD's, and Blu-Rays will also be traded. 

Though not all of my readers are Torontonians, I can't stress how important this initiative is. Thousands of LP's are tossed in the trash every year.  I get it, not everyone wants a beat up Conway Twitty LP.  But you will never know for sure unless its up for grabs. The Toronto Mid-Town Collectibles Show has a 'free pile' every year that includes many 'undesired LPs', only to see them vanish by the end of the day.  Do your part- either come to this swap, or organize a swap with your friends.  It's a great way to experience new tunes while saving our landfills. 

See what treasures were found at last years swap!

  1. Very odd, how he skipped right over Joe Santriani as he discussed each album.
