If you’re looking to make some extra spending money this holiday season, a little personal Christmas bonus might be hiding right in your own record collection! This week, expert vinyl collector Mighty John Marshall of moneymusic.com went on our sister station, Los Angeles’ K-EARTH, to count down the twelve most valuable Christmas vinyl records.
Earlier this week (November 13) Beatles fans in New York and Los Angeles were treated to mobile Beatle “pop-up shops.” The “shops” were customized double decker buses, which made several stops. The buses served to promote the release of the Beatles’ catalog on 180-gram vinyl LPs. The stores sold the LPs collectively as a box set, as well as individually; Beatles CDs and other merchandise was also on sale. In each city, a unique commemorative shirt from the event was sold (and sold quickly to eager Beatles collectors).
