Any one in the Central Texas area planning on checking this out this weekend? Now that I have a turntable I think I will probably hit this up at least on Saturday.

    thsmith , I just happened to have seen it advertised on CL here there's one vendor who is clearing out an estate it looks like and the original owner was a collector so i'm hoping to find a pre if nothing else.. supposed to be 2K sqft just for that vendor now that I know the website i'll have to keep an active eye on it.

    fossy let me know if you decide to head out there.. I'll probably be there late morning early afternoon before the UT game, it'd be kewl to meet a local fellow polkie, and they have CDs there if you're looking just for some new music too.
