Here’s a perfect way to spend your Saturday. Or some money on a Saturday. It’s Record Store Day! Vinyl is the spherical source where many of us first became exposed to great music. Nowadays of course, there’s an abundant number of ways to access and archive audio.
But there’s no denying the supreme satisfaction of using one’s thumbnail to penetrate the protective plastic surrounding a 7” or 12” jacket containing some virgin vinyl. The pleasure of observing the proper hygiene in removing the disc and placing it delicately upon a turntable for the first time – it’s exciting just to describe the process in words!
Please spend this special day celebrating at your favorite vinyl emporium. And if you’re busy, try to visit again real soon!
