If you've worked in a record store, chances are you have at some point used music to manipulate patrons. This discussion is about that practice.I used to work in a store that had routine all-ages…Continue

I think we all have an opinion on this matter. You worked in them, you shop in them, you go on vacation and visit them. Help your fellow RRT-ers spend all their money and talk about your favorites…Continue

In Central Nebraska, an oasis of Music--Dusty's Record's existed.  You could find ANYTHING/ANYBODY there...no matter how obscure.

One of my favorite memories was walking in and seeing the new Steve Miller Band release (Circle of Love?) displayed prominently.  Right below was a sign that said "DO NOT BUY THIS RECORD."  I think, [and I may be confusing another sign], it continued ". . . so slick you can't keep the needle in the tracks."  Undeterred, the Lemmings sucked them up.

Hilarious.

VINYL FEVER TAMPA HAS CLOSED

Dear friends, customers, and Tampa Bay community,

We are sorry to have to close our store, but would like to thank you all for helping us to live such a long, gratifying business life in Tampa Bay.

If you are in possession of a Vinyl Fever (Tampa) Gift Certificate issued within the past 12 months, you may redeem it at MOJO MUSIC on Fowler (near USF) or at INKWOOD BOOKS in South Tampa. In conjunction with Vinyl Fever, both Mojo and Inkwood are also offering a 10% discount when redeeming your Vinyl Fever Gift Certificate at their fine establishments!

Thanks for 30 loud years.

Love Always,

Vinyl Fever Tampa

I'm pretty sure it was with 2 "A's" I have a picture of it on my site, but you can't see the name, just the initials. I have a bunch of old cd's around here somewhere with their label on it. I'll see if I can find one. They were at 1150 North Highland Ave.

I've been to Poobah's, Vinyl Fetish and Record Surplus. There was also ( maybe still is) a chain called Penny Lane.

Wasn't it Aron's with one "A"? I lived in the suburbs, so I only shopped there once. Other LA shops I visited: Rene's All Ears, Vinyl Fetish, Record Surplus, Poobah's in Pasadena, Texas Records in Santa Monica, Rockaway Records...memory fails

Does anyone remember Aarons Records in Hollywood? They were on Highland, just north of Santa Monica Blvd.

They had the best selection of used CD's at the time. When Amoeba opened their mega store a few miles away, they went under.

I loved that place. I must have bout 70% of my music from them.
