I spent all my money on vinyl records as a kid and I love seeing LPs are hot again....I began at age 10 using babysitting money to buy my first LP which was Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.. Buying records in Ann Arbor was initially done at Discount Records where Iggy Pop used to work. Then it became in vogue to go to Schoolkids records which was very close to the Michigan Theater.
My friends and I spent hours and hours going through the racks of LPs....a different time than today. Today I am song specific. I want a song and buy it. Record Store Day supports the independent store owners and we are all about helping local business. So plz go buy some vinyl today from your corner record shop!
.So in honor of today we will give you a bit on info on Record Day....
Record Store Day is an annual event, founded in 2007, held on the third Saturday of April each year to to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store. The day brings together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world. A number of records are pressed specifically for Record Store Day, and are only distributed to shops participating in the scheme.
