Brown from Maine-based Bull Moose music hatched the idea for Record Store Day, the annual event to celebrate local record stores.

Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops host performances to mark the occasion.

Radio Wasteland Records will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Record Store Day from 10 am to 8pm on Saturday, April 22.

He commented: "Record Store Day is a huge global event".

That gives music lovers something to cheer as Record Store Day celebrates its 10th anniversary on Saturday in stores from ME to California. It kicks off Saturday in NY and will also visit Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Performers include Savoire Adore, Craig Brown Band, Angelica Garcia and others. Many record stores across the country will have local musicians you can meet and talk to about the music.

"Our customers needed to know that we would always be there for them", Brown said.

He continued: "But I'm not going on the tour to clap everyone on and sit on the bench and play midweek". Warburton stood down from the Wales captaincy this season and is now out with a knee injury.

"We sell records, and are probably the biggest record store in Mississippi", Strachan said. "As far as the product line goes, it really does help". Tomorrow there will a session on the Vinyl culture at Title Waves where the discussion will be all about how the vinyl culture has changed over time, how it is affecting consumptions of music these days and more. "Creating a vinyl album has a lot of steps: graphics, layouts, pressing tests to make sure it sounds just right; it's a lot of work, but a lot of fun".

The event was launched in 2007 in the United States to celebrate independent music shops who faced the huge threat of the emerging ecommerce market, which was beginning to dominate sales of compact discs (CD). "Everything is super limited, so people like to get there early to make sure they get their hands on that piece that they're looking to track down this year", Stockinger said. "It's a mixed crowd".

As part of the tenth Record Store Day, the shop at Devonshire Place on Skipton Road will be opening from 8am free for the queue of customers which usually starts snaking down Skipton Road from the wee small hours. Electric Kitsch is one of the few independent record stores in the Great Lakes Bay Region. But most stores are willing to put up with the stress for the financial boon.

"Each year it's just grown", he said. They're referred to as 'flippers, ' and they betray what Record Store Day is supposed to be about, says Keyes. "Come in and experience it". Stephanie Terpening performs at the store from noon until 2:00 p.m. Brett Mitchell will follow at 2:30 p.m. and perform until 4:00 p.m.
