LA CROSSE, WI -

The La Crosse Music Expo is proving "the classics never die."

Music collectors and enthusiasts of all ages met at All-Star lanes in La Crosse on Sunday to find their old-time vinyl favorites.

The expo showcased thousands of CDs, 8-tracks and lots of other music memorabilia, but organizers say vinyl records are what music lovers really look for.  

Even though vinyl records date back to the 60s, it's the younger generation that has shown interest in them.

"There's been a resurgence in vinyl in the last 10 years. It's a good thing. We are seeing a lot of interest, especially amongst young people coming in and buying music now," said La Crosse Music Expo organizer Richard Franson.

Franson said one major reason for the revival is that music-lovers prefer the sound quality of vinyl as opposed to digital recordings.
