JONESBORO – A record sale to help raise funds to support the station will be held by KASU-FM, the non-profit, public media service of Arkansas State University, Friday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Nov. 10.  Proceeds will assist with the acquisition and production of the radio programs featured on 91.9 FM and kasu.org as well as the station’s community outreach efforts and upgrades to the station’s facilities.

A supporter of KASU recently donated a collection of approximately 7,000 LP records as well as hundreds of 45 rpm singles and laserdisc movies to the station.  The collection includes classic rock, country, jazz, classical, R&B, Broadway, film scores and novelty albums from the 1940s to the 1980s.  Everything will be sold for $3 or less.  Cash and checks will be accepted, and all sales will be final.

The sale will be in the lobby of the Department of Media, adjacent to the KASU studios, on the first floor of the Education/Communications Building on the A-State campus. Look for the satellite dishes and the antennas on top of the building, 330 University Loop West, located south of the Dean B. Ellis Library. 

The sale will be open first to A-State faculty, staff and students as well as KASU contributors on Friday, Nov. 9, from noon to 6 p.m.  The sale is open to the general public Saturday, Nov. 10, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
