Record Store Day! About time there was a record store day. Now that everyone gets all of their music from the web and big box retailers, it's all too easy to forget that there are still hundreds of terrific independent records stores around. You have to look harder now - my late, lamented Boogie Records of Toledo went off into the sunset a few years ago, and last week we were in Ferndale and Record Time was just - gone. There's an article about it here.
Still, better to celebrate the ones that are still around, and that is what Record Store Day is for. On April 19 there will be lots of in-store activities, and tons of stores are participating.
