What if I told you that people still buy CDs? I know! We’re as shocked as you, but Vinyl is passing over the original digital media format. Some people are predicting a CD comeback, but that seems fairly unlikely unless Net Neutrality is here to stay and bandwidth usage is taxed.
As a student in Champaign from 1988 to 1992, I can’t actually recall going to Record Swap since I was studying all the time (wink, wink). However, since I’ve been reintroduced to Champaign the last five years, I’ve visited the store almost every time that I’m in town. Record Swap has become a regular go to.
When I got back into vinyl, I did a lot of my base collection acquisition at Record Swap. I got to know the owner, Bob, a bit. I explored the spoken word collection, soundtracks and everything in between.
Therefore, it was with much sadness that I just found out that they are moving and at worst ditching the physical storefront. Quelle Dommage!!
Hero Saves Vinyl Collection
If you thought that there were no heroes left since Anthony Kennedy resigned from the Supreme Court, worry not! A hero saves vinyl collection in Phoenix hot car. It is summer after all.
