ARCA's 37th annual Record & CD Show will be held March 2, and March 3, 2018. Dealers from all over the country will be on hand selling tens of thousands of 45s, LPs and CDs of all genres of music and all time periods. Have some records you wish to trade or sell? Some dealers may be in the market for your particular item(s).

 This year's show will again be held at the Bessemer Civic Center, just off of Exit # 108 of I 59 in Bessemer on Hwy 11. The address is 113 9th Ave., Bessemer, AL and their phone number is 205-424-7469. There will also be an on-site concesson stand open from 4-6 on Friday and 10:30-1:30 on Saturday, with a full menu, in case you get hungry!

 Show hours and admission prices are: Early Birds - Friday, March 2, 1-4pm, $10 Regular admission: Friday, March 2, 4-9, $5 and Saturday, March 3, 9-5, $5. There is also a special two-day admission of $8 which will get you in both days. (YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY SEE EVERYTHING IN ONE DAY!) Kids 12 and under are free. Plenty of free parking and parking lot security provided Friday evening. This show is for everyone. Thousands of records can be had for $1 each, sometimes less.

 Mark your calendars and we'll see you there!

ARCA is happy to welcome back 97.7, the Peach, who will be doing a live remote from our Record and CD Show on Friday, March 2 from 3-5. As you come into the Record Show, please stop by and say 'Hi." They usually have some free stuff. Remember, the Peach plays all those great oldies from the 60s thru the 80s. Hard to believe that the 80s are actually considered oldies now!
