Record Store Day

Record store day 

Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is held on the third Saturday in April


Music defines the culture of each generation. Like any technology, the record industry has seen a huge evolution and succession of record formats over the past 60 years. In today's high tech world, digital downloading of music, has all but replaced physical records in any format. As downloading of music has grown in use, record stores have declined in numbers. Major chain music stores have disappeared, along with many independent stores. It is only fitting, that today we celebrate the hundreds of independently owned records stores that remain and the culture they represent, even as they dwindle in number.  

45 RPM Records

The Changing Record Format

Record formats have changed with the times and technology. First came 78 rpm vinyl records. They were replaced by 33 rpm and 45 rpm vinyl records. The record industry reached its peak in the 1960s and 1970s. These records were bought by the millions for every hit song or album. Like every product, it slowly became obsolete, as new recording formats with better sound quality and more record storage capabilities came on the market. First, there was beta and audio cassettes. The pace of the decline of vinyl records seriously increased with the arrival or audio CDs. Then, Ipods hit the market by storm, as digital downloading of music arrived on the scene. Digital downloads of songs onto a wide variety of devices, has all but eliminated the existence of any physical records.    


To celebrate Record Store Day, step back in time and visit your local record store, before they all disappear. The few that survive will evolve their product line to fit a digital world. Support them, by purchasing a record or two. Record stores will recognize this day with special events and store specials on sale.
