For connoisseurs of vintage vinyl, the WFMU Record and CD Fair is an annual ritual for its crates upon crates of records and CDs from more than 200 dealers. The three-day musical smorgasbord also features live broadcasts, performances (catch Ted Leo at 4:30 on Saturday and Fabulous Diamonds at 4 on Sunday) and movie screenings (the “Sunday Morning Short Theater” at 10:15 a.m. is a showcase of short films, including Anton Corbijn’s fascinating 13-minute documentary on the life of Don Van Vliet after Captain Beefheart). Tip: Get in before the crowd today at 4 for $25, which includes re-admission all weekend.

Fri., Oct. 22, 7 p.m.; Oct. 23-24, 10 a.m., 2010
