Record Store Directory

Grand Soft Opening… Pardon the Dust

Good Aftermornevenight Folks, depending on where you are, welcome back to the most non-formal formal non-happening ever we call Uniting With Music. Just checking in to let you know what we’ve been working on the last little while, we are currently compiling a list of every record store we can find in America (will include the territories also) to share with you. We are doing this at no cost to anyone, not charging any store advertisements or making them meet requirements to make the list. If it’s a record store (even if they don’t sell vinyl) it makes the list.

Our goal is to help provide a means to bring folks together with music…or Unite if you will. So maybe you don’t need our introductory music lessons, or maybe for some reason you think you can’t even pick up the jug. The Record Store Directory (RSD) will help expand your musical horizons and allow you more proficient at your instrument of choice…the radio.

Take a second to say Hi, to the proprietor of these stores, their wealth of knowledge when it comes to music can help lead you down a musical road you have never once thought of. A favorite past time of mine is to walk the isle’s and find a cover that calls to me. Sometimes it’s something you play through once and never come back to, but once in a blue moon you find that magical album that becomes your favorite.

So keep an open mind, and don’t be afraid to say Hi to the other store patrons as well, once you do your no longer fellow patrons your friends because a friend is just someone you haven’t said Hi to yet. Your new found friend may have some musical knowledge to drop on you and maybe you can do them the same kindness. Or maybe you end up in one of them fun record store debates of old. Any way step out of your comfort zone, it’s a great way to grow. Until next time, Happy Hunting old friend.
