Tuning in to Record Store Day in Delco

"There's kind of a clubhouse mentality to a record store", said McGlothin, a customer and former owner of Speakertree Records.

Planet Retro Records 226 Dr Martin Luther King Jr St N: will have live music from Lazer Mouth, Kevin K. Band, Squadron and more, along with exclusive beer from Deviant Libation. "Without that connection, a record is just a piece of plastic like anything else".

Beginning on Record Store Day, the folks at Friendly Records in Bristol have decided to make it "Record Store Weekend" with live performances from Snails, Alex Lipinski and Olive Haigh.

Speakertree has been participating since 2008.

The Ries Brothers performed at Bananas Music in St. Petersburg for Record Store Day on April 21, 2018.

"Through the vinyl recession, there were a lot of independent record stores that closed around the world, but many of them were able to hold it out, and then new ones have popped up since vinyl has made a comeback", he said.

Over the past nine years since Record Store Day was instituted, cities across the country have declared it an official holiday.

If vinyl is not your thing, you can grab a used CD version of The Who's "The Who Sell Out" for $4.99, and a cassette (!) copy of Phil Collins' "No Jacket Required" can be had for the low, low price of $1.99.

Speakertree is Lynchburg's only local record store and has been in business almost 10 years.

It does not need to be Record Store Day to enjoy the sounds of vinyl, Old Towne Strings in La Crosse offers a selection of records throughout the year. Wax Trax will be carrying as many vinyl releases as it can cram on the shelves.

"The whole idea is to create suspense and getpeople out to the store", Gederberg said.

Bart's Record Shop 1625 Folsom Street, Boulder Bart's opens at 7 a.m. and is stocking up on special releases like the Grateful Dead's four-LP Fillmore West album, which was recorded on February, 27, 1969; Wilco's Live at the Troubadour; David Alexrod's 1968 debut, Song of Innocence; and the National's Boxer Live in Brussels.

"That's one of the biggest misconceptions about record stores, that we're not busy, but we're busier than ever", Marsh said.

Nate Stidham, a former member of band Arson's Harbor, got his start at the record store.

"We had queues from 3am of people waiting to get their hands on the records".

He describes Speakertree as more than just a cool record store but as an integral part of the community.

On Saturday, the Vinyl Junkies' experience will be more of a group hang, as music fiends hit their favorite retail spots for Record Store Day, a worldwide celebration of independent brick-and-mortar record stores and the musicians and consumers who love them.

McGlothin owned the store from 2012 to 2014 but still goes by the shop at least once a week.
