Music lovers dig through records at USF Rock 'N' Swap

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Collectors and music lovers from around the Bay Area came to San Francisco Sunday to dig through stacks and stacks of record albums.

ABC7 News was at the University of San Francisco for the KUSF Rock 'N' Swap.

For 34 years, both casual and serious collectors have been coming here several times a year to sift through the bins, hoping to find a rare gem.

It's the city's largest record fair, attracting dealers from around the state.

Organizer Miranda Morris says, "There's a lot of music out there that's not downloadable, it's not online, it's rare, it's just happen stance, kind of like internet browsing, but in the real world."

The first Rock 'N' Swap was held in 1983 and admission has remained the same since it started-just $3.

A portion of the money raised goes to support the university's online radio station KUSF.

If you missed Sunday's event-the next one is scheduled for Sunday, February 11th, 2018.
