In our second round of interviews with Record Store Day co-founder, Michael Kurtz, we go more in-depth about the inner workings of Record Store Day itself.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve gone to Looney Tunes Records & CDs. Rarely a week goes by where I don’t pop in to see what new arrivals they have, or at the very least, to chat with John Sadowski.
Terry Cole is the founder and owner of both Colemine Records (the label) and Plaid Room Records (the record shop), and if you haven’t had the pleasure of laying one of Colemine’s sweet slab across your turntable, then you are missing out.
With loads of records, endless musical knowledge and an actual brick and mortar store, you can expect Dylan’s channel to continue to grow for as long as he wants to keep at it. That’s right, you heard right, Dillon has his very own record store. After years in the vinyl game selling online and locally, Dillon finally opened Noble Records, which is named after his son.
Arnie Goodman is a music lifer. He’s basically done it all and then some. These days, he’s an accomplished photo-journalist, but if you go back, the music and record scene of NYC over the last 45 or so years has Arnie’s fingerprints all over it.
I can interview artists big, small, and in between, but spotlighting my local community will always come first. It’s not something I will ever stop doing. Period.
Mr. Bongo is and has been putting out some of the best reissues focused on World Music that you can buy. Basically, if you see them, and you like that type of music- insta-buy them.
The day had come at last, and we had finally arrived at the shop. I was excited and shaking with anticipation over what we would find. Upon entering, it was clear that Moodies had preserved the atmosphere of a bygone era.
Records stores make next to nothing on new vinyl. They are basically strong armed into buying all this product, or they will be left out of the party and have no one in their store on a day that was supposed to be all about them.
