If you have vinyl records packed away in your basement or attic, here's a list of 10 that might inspire you rummage through them because there might be a hidden gem there.

Mighty John the Record Guy, a regular guest on the Keeler in the Morning Show, is the expert we rely on when it comes to the value of records. This month, John came up with a list of "10 Records Worth $100 or More," plus he added two bonus records valued in the thousands that he calls “Records You Should Know about.”

Listen to the complete interview with John below, and be sure to listen to the end when a listener called in to find out the value on a Beatles record he owns. It's an LP that a lot of people around here probably own, and the value is pretty impressive.
