10.17.13: RRR’s Turning 30, Wants To Donate “Humungous” Noise Collection

rrr large

RRR Records opened up shop in Lowell, MA back on Jan 3, 1984 and will soon be turning 30 years old. Instead of cake, some balloons, maybe a pony ride, owner & operator Ron Lessard (known affectionately throughout the noise world as Emil Beaulieau) wants to celebrate by donating his entire cassette and cdr noise collection! Now, before you get all giddy thinking you’re about to become the proud owner of what Ron calls the “largest collection of noise and noise related activity in the USA”, keep in mind that he hopes the collection heads to a museum or university. He could use some direction getting this philanoisethropic venture going, so if you work at The Library Of Congress AND are into The New Blockaders, get in touch with this man! Contact info is available here.

Here is the original message Ron posted on Facebook:


I’ll keep this post updated with any hot new info!
