Radio France is going to sell some records

Radio France has, as you might expect, a massive collection of records. One and a half million items on vinyl alone.

Now it's digitising its collection, though, it's thinking it might not need to take up so much space with records and so there's going to be an auction:

As deputy director of documentation and head of the Radio France discography Marc Maret told Trax: “This is not a dead collection. It is alive and well, is used every day, and is affiliated to a music platform that allows its distribution.”
First sale is in June. Anyone asking about Plastique Bertrand will be barred from bidding.
