Cleveland, OH | Final Vinyl Show To Take Place on Saturday at Winchester: What started off as an event where local vinyl collectors could buy, sell and swap records over a couple of pints at a local club escalated into what founder Jason Burchaski describes as “more or less a giant record show.” Now, after eight years, Burchaski will host one last Vinyl Show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Winchester. “The exact reason we started doing these things was to become the anti-record show. People show up, pay to get in, look at records, buy some and leave,” he explains via email. “We were trying to break free of that transactional mentality of what a record show was and we did for a while. It was an amazing run, but it’s become less of a hobby and labor of love and turned into a job and overall. I am no longer having fun doing it.” Burchaski says the event has raised thousands of dollars over the years for local area charities and stoked a local interest in vinyl.
