The day has finally (almost) come after months of waiting. Visit your local record store on Saturday and purchase something to support them. In this struggling economy, lend a helping hand (or dollar). Visit Record Store Day’s website for a list of participating stores. Those shops are where you can pick up exclusive Record Store Day releases…of which there are many.

Rough Trade is releasing a cassette (yes, you read that) compilation that looks pretty bitching….I want. The problem is I no longer have a boom box. What will I play it on?
