National Vinyl Record Day
National Vinyl Record Day is also known as a Gramophone record. It is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat polyvinyl chloride disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc.
“My introduction to all this great music and to ‘the music business’ came from hanging around, and eventually, working at independent record stores. Nothing beats browsing in your favorite store, listening to music, finding something new or old that you’ve been searching for, all that. And without these stores, there’s just no way Wilco would still be around.” – Jeff Tweedy
