Do you long to dig through cardboard boxes of vinyl albums in the garage sales of the midwest, but you happen to live in New York City? Then stop by the Record Fair and live out all your Steve-Buscemi-in-Ghost-World fantasies.

In addition to the records, there are CDs, films, live music, and live broadcasts of WFMU shows. This year will also be the first RadioVision Festival:

On Saturday, Oct 29th our symposium will feature Ira Glass (This American Life), Tom Scharpling (The Best Show on WFMU), Marc Maron (WTF podcast), Vicki Bennett, DJ/Rupture, and more! Sunday Oct 30th is a hack day hosted by the Free Music Archive, the Echo Nest, and Zeega, who invite hackers, musicians, digital storytellers and DIY media-makers to devote a day to reinvent radio using images, social media, and open archive materials.

For all the details and the full list of events, visit the WFMU site.
