KZUM’s Record and Junk sale celebrates Record Store Day early

Record Store Day is two days away, but Lincolnites hungry for the classic audio medium can whet their appetites a day early at KZUM.

The Lincoln nonprofit community radio station will hold its annual Record and Junk sale tomorrow, April 15, at its physical location, 3534 S 48th St. Development Director Shannon Claire says the timing allows KZUM to promote Record Store Day festivities for shops around town without competing with them directly.

We thought it would be fun to join in on the RSD festivities with our local record shops and to help build the hype and awareness for a great nationally celebrated day,” Claire says. “We decided to hold our sale the day before, while developing a relationship to promote Record Store Day as a whole here in Lincoln.”

Early RSD movers will find an assortment of vinyl in both good and excellent condition — including a Japanese first-press release of The Beatles Long Tall Sally EP — as well as CDs and books.

KZUM’s Record and Junk sale runs tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All proceeds benefit the community radio station. RSVP here.

Also, watch tomorrow for our Record Store Day round-up. Those with tips on RSD happenings in Lincoln, Omaha and Greater Nebraska can contact us at

KRNU concert benefits Omaha Girls Rock

University of Nebraska-Lincoln radio station KRNU is throwing a free, all-ages concert tonight to benefit Omaha Girls Rock. The Sunks, Super Ghost, A Ferocious Jungle Cat and Pleiades & the Bear will perform the station’s “Fresh & Local” concert at Vega, 350 Canopy St, starting at 8 p.m.

“I wanted this concert to be entirely free and to support a local organization that does great things for the community.” KRNU Music Director Jordan Howard said in an email. “I’m really impressed that [OGR] uses music to teach younger girls to be self-reliant and confident (along with many other important life skills), and those are all very cool things.”

Howard says 100-percent of donations benefit Omaha Girls Rock, and will be taken at the door. KRNU is accepting monetary donations on behalf of OGR, as well as old guitar and instrument cases per OGR’s request.

RSVP to the concert here.
