Record Store Days

Tomorrow is the annual Record Store Day. Go to your local record store, if you still have one and purchase some music. Record stores are a dying breed. Gary Calamar a DJ on L.A.'s KCRW as well as music supervisor for TV shows such as Dexter and music journalist Phil Gallo collaborated on a book, Record Store Days: From Vinyl to Digital and Back Again. USA Today has a nice piece on the writers and the book. Gary worked at Licorice Pizza a now defunct LA record store. He's lived the record store life. There is a forward from R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, who met bandmate Michael Stipe at a record store.
