2010_01_CHIRP.jpg CHIRP just celebrated their first year anniversary with a whole host of events, and a nice little profile in the New York Times. Not one to rest on their laurels, the indie radio station recently announced dates for its annual record fair on its blog.

April 9 and 10 is when people at the Chicago Journeyman Plumbers Union Hall becomes wax ecstatic over all the used and new records being sold. (Will I be allowed to attend now that I've inadvertently made a Sponge reference?) More details to come soon, but head on over to the CHIRP site to find out where you can donate your old records. Viva la vinyl!
