Westword recently wrote about Denver DJ Musa Bailey, who cleared out hundreds of records from his parents' garage. The process was a struggle, but ultimately liberating.

"It’s part of this corny cycle of life among DJs and especially record collectors: putting records back into the ether so you can get more records," Bailey told Westword.

Whether you're inspired by Bailey or Japanese tidying guru Marie Kondo, Boulder- and Denver-based independent radio station KGNU is offering you the chance to lighten your load in advance of its Annual Record and CD Sale this September.

The station is looking for "gently used audio treasure." Donations can be set up by calling 303-825-5468 or by emailing [email protected]

If you're looking to build up your music load, go to KGNU's Annual Record and CD Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, September 1, or at the station's Fifteenth Annual Party, from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, September 6, at 700 Kalamath Street. For more information, go to KGNU's website
