Rasputin Berkeley Store

Rasputin Music has been buying, selling and trading several million dollars a year of CDs, books, DVDs, games and LPs from people around the Bay Area since 1971.

Because they support KQED, they would like to offer you the chance to donate the proceeds of the sale of your CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays or games to KQED.

All you have to do is bring your CDs and DVDs into one of their stores. They will scan the barcode on your media, and give you their database price.

You will receive a check made payable to KQED, along with a tax-deductible receipt. Simply mail the check to us at:

2601 Mariposa Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

If you donate $50 or more to KQED by selling your used media to Rasputin Music, they will increase your donation by 20 percent, and you will receive one of these super-cool Hot/Cold changing KQED mugs as a thank-you gift!

Drought Watch 2015: Record-Low Sierra Snowpack

The Sierra Nevada snowpack, which typically supplies nearly a third of California's water, is showing the lowest water content on record: 6 percent of the long-term average for April 1. That shatters last year's low-water mark of 25 percent (tied with 1977).
