Frederick Record Riot

People shop for records at the Frederick Record Riot on Saturdays. There were local record stores and collectors selling their vinyls. 

As “Enter Sandman” by Metallica began swelling in a building at the Frederick Fairgrounds on Saturday, people’s hands continued to flip through the bins of records before them — but their heads began to bob in unison.

Hundreds of people of all ages had flocked to the Frederick Record Riot, a large-scale show for local record stores and vinyl aficionados to sell their wares and share their passion for music.

My father had a collection of classical music on vinyl that numbered 1000- 1200 albums. He died before the resurgence of vinyl. We found ourselves unable to even give them to anyone or donate them to any library or other institution. We had to throw them away.
