A Record A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

Record Store Day draws thousands of line ladened music fanatics from all over the world, and with good reason and intention, but why? Who wants to stand in line (surely not Michelle) to try and get their hands on a record that— wait better yet, who even listens to records anyhow?

The answer, a hell of a lot of people, that's who and the number is growing. Started in 2007 as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture that exists around and within independently owned record shops. The very first Record Store Day was held on April 19th, 2008 and now Record Store Day has now spread across the globe, to literally everywhere except Antarctica.

What used to be a rather small community of supposed "music snobs", the vinyl collecting community has exploded in recent years, with no intention of slowing down. But with this explosion, comes money, and with money comes corporate America wanting their piece of the vinyl pie. More people buying more records is a wonderful thing until it isn't. Thus far Record Store Day has been reserved for smaller independent establishments, but it's only a matter of time until corporate America comes looking for a way to cash in. Big retail giants like Wal-Mart and Target are already getting a taste of just how lucrative the vinyl market can be with all of their special releases and exclusive colors that they have been releasing. Where does this lead? Only time will tell.

Over the years, Record Store Day has become not only the time of year that we all line up for exclusive records that have never been pressed or released but it's also become that one time every year where we get to meet new people and see old friends that we otherwise wouldn't have gotten to know if it weren't for that pesky old wait in line at the local record shop. If corporate America does force its way in, things will surely change and the Record Store Day we know today will most likely be a thing of the past.

This week we're talking RSD, the past, present, and what the future might hold. It's season four, episode three of your favorite vape shop salesman's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!
