    I'm hoping that I'm not creating a duplicate thread regarding this subject. Mods: if there is another thread on this topic please merge this or delete the thread.

    I probably should have started this thread around the middle of March, because it's been that long since the site "Record Shows Of America" has been active. I was in Omaha a couple weeks ago attending the record show there and RSA was one of the topics of conversation amongst the dealers. For a long long time I always looked at RSA as the best site going regarding where the shows were going to be, what date, table info, etc., etc. The last posting regarding a show update was Feb. 17th.

    NOW! I AM aware of the other show info sites such as Vinyl Times, Vinyl Record Shows, Record Shows.net, etc., but am kind of wondering if the individual behind RSA has passed, or if there is a health issue where he has stopped working, or if the site has assumed a new name.

    Would anybody out there have any info regarding this? Appreciate what responses comes out here.

    It's working for me. Are you clicking on the USA map then clicking on your state?

    Shows about 10 shows coming up in my state from now til December.

    Nebraska shows one in Omaha in October.

    Mr. LP Collector, I believe you are correct there is an issue with the website. There have been no updates since February 20, 2018. I emailed the contact address inquiring about the site's status a few weeks back and have yet to receive a response. It is indeed sad if that services goes away.

    I think they're done. Several days ago I clicked on the top page, FAQ's, Latest Show Updates, and the other links--am getting nothing at all. It's sad because it was SUCH a good source regarding record shows and promoter contacts all across the States.

    Not sure what's happening here. The email returns all messages. I also tried mailing them because the site is apparently based nearby (had no idea) to see if there was a way I could help run the site, and the letter was returned by the USPS saying the PO Box was no longer theirs. Site must be dead.

    John was hit with a sudden illness about 1 year ago. He went from a self proclaimed A type personality to barely having any energy. He told me his site was written in an outdated format that would require him teaching someone how to program and update it. He did not have the energy to teach anyone. He did not reply to my last e mail a couple months ago. Other people have failed to reach him so we are assuming he has passed on or is too ill to reply. He never replied to several people who offered to take over the site
