Dust off those records for donation to the Okanagan Vinyl Festival

The annual event benefits Peach City Radio, a not-for-profit society in Penticton

Time to take those old records off the shelf, and sit and listen to them by yourself – or donate them to a good cause.

Peach City Radio, CFUZ, is looking for donations of rock, pop, soul and jazz vinyl records for its upcoming Okanagan Vinyl Festival. They will also accept donations of good quality audio equipment that is in working order.

The donation drive will be held at the Cannery Trade Centre parking lot on Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Then, CFUZ volunteers will test the donated items and equipment prior to their sale at the Okanagan Vinyl Festival on Sept. 22 at the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-In Centre.
