Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1000 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists make special appearances and performances. In the past, radio stations have done vinyl giveaways, an all-vinyl radio show, remote broadcasts from record stores, and more to commemorate the event. Each year, a Record Store Day Ambassador is chosen and this year we are honored to have Chuck D from Public Enemy. Previous ambassadors have included Josh Homme, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Jack White.
Record Store Day is Saturday, April 19!
