 How and what to give to the KPBX Recordings & Videos Sale:

 You can do yourself some good, oh listener, by recycling your unwanted or unused recordings in any commercial format and your unwanted or unused commercial videos in any formats to our sale. By recycling your old music, you free up needed space in your house, participate in a good management practice and you allow others to reuse your music. The circle is completed as a new owner gets some treasure that he's been looking for; you recycle music that you no longer need andreduce your unused material; SPR profits too from the donation; and music that might go unheard gets to be reused by other listeners.
The following guidelines come from our resident guru of the RV Sale, Bill Wright; hopefully by following these guides you can make some other music and movie lovers very happy.
