Vinyl music gives record stores a boost in a digital world

For him, planning Record Store Day is a full-time job, year-round.

He said he previously had trouble getting a record released for Record Store Day because of restrictions that he didn't agree with.

Brown from Maine-based Bull Moose music hatched the idea for Record Store Day, the annual event to celebrate local record stores. Tomorrow there will a session on the Vinyl culture at Title Waves where the discussion will be all about how the vinyl culture has changed over time, how it is affecting consumptions of music these days and more.

Some of this year's nationwide releases include David Bowie's "Cracked Actor" and a 7-inch single of the Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever".

You can find all the record stores near you that are participating in Record Store Day on the website, and search for any free gigs that might be going on as well.

Record Store Day is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store - the staff, the customers, and the artists. As the executive in charge of marketing, Brown was also one of the retail store employees who 10 years ago conceived of "Record Store Day" as an opportunity to demonstrate the value of brick-and-mortar stores as places to gather and shop.

Ericka Thomas, a junior sports, arts and entertainment (SAEM) management major and Warner Music representative, said she plans to celebrate a decade of vinyl recognition with record stores across Pittsburgh.

All kinds of special albums and CDs are being released just for Record Store Day. Their numbers, too, have increased in recent years; both bookstores and record stores have found ways to compete by hosting local events at stores and positioning store staff as helpful experts. "I think it's just better".

The 10th anniversary of Record Store Day on Saturday will be celebrated locally at Ragged Records, 418 E. 2nd St., Davenport, and Co-Op Records, 3727 Avenue of the Cities, Moline.
