From the San Fransisco Chronicle, comes news that the legendary Village Music in Mill Valley California is closing. (Click Here) This unfortunately is becoming more and more typical as fewer and fewer people are buying vinyl. I still have my turntable, but I have been looking into buying a USB port turntable to change my record collection over to digital. However, I have 1,500 lps, and 45s, so I don't think I am going to have the time to do it:-) I do know that ZZZ Records in Des Moines is still going, and business must have improved since I rarely see Nate there anymore! He used to practically live there, but now he can afford help!
There is a lot of great music that is not on CD, that you can get on vinyl. If you have a turntable, then support your local record store, because if you don't record stores will disappear!
