For Those Who Sell The Rock, We Salute You

…drug dealers and jewelers aside, I’m talking about record stores, of course!

Today is Record Store Day and if you’re in the market for some new sounds, I hope you skip the iTunes or the Best Buy & head for a locally owned shop of your choosing.

As a kid when I wasn’t browsing libraries or thrift stores, I could be found in record shops methodically searching every square inch for audio treasure. The people you meet in local stores are almost guaranteed to be 1000 times more helpful, more knowledgeable than your average corporate retail drone – and that goes for your fellow patrons as well as the staff.

Much thanks and love to friends & loved ones currently keeping their respective independent music stores alive, and to everyone else around the globe working hard every day to make sure that music geeks like moi have somewhere friendly to turn to.

Enjoy this muxtape, in your honor:

Some shopping suggestions:
Sonic Boom, Seattle
Charley’s 33s & CDs, Albuquerque
Stinkweeds, Phoenix
Lou’s Records, Encinitas

    It’s genuinely very complex in this full of activity life to
    listen news on Television, therefore I only use world wide web for that
    reason, and get the newest news.
