Montgomery County Public Libraries Celebrates Vinyl Culture with “Just for the Record-A Vinyl Day”

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) is presenting the second “Just for the Record-A Vinyl Day” from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. This free event, celebrating music on vinyl, its culture, art, and sound, is geared for residents of all ages. The festival will be held at the Silver Spring Library located at 900 Wayne Ave.

The event includes a full lineup of panels, screenings, and activities including a preview of the documentary “Feast Your Ears” about WHFS, the popular Bethesda-based radio station that was the first in the region to broadcast in FM stereo.

Other featured events will include a panel discussion on creating and collecting vinyl records; makerspace activities for the whole family; demonstrations with a turntable and vinyl records; and a book signing with local author and beloved former WHFS deejay Cerphe Colwell.

The event also features MCPL’s first music competition, Make Music Montgomery, where previously selected submissions of musical acts will perform in front of community judges.
