As usual this week of the year, I thank everyone involved in the success of this thing we call Record Store Day. Michael, Carrie, Eric, Andrea, The Retail Selection Committee, and all the artists, labels, distributors, managers and everyone else involved in making this our 11th holiday a grand success, thank you.
There’s a reason we all chose this industry to devote our careers to, and Saturday is the day to celebrate that choice. We get to put away our computers and adding machines and celebrate what is still pure in this business – the love of music. Have a great day Saturday at your favorite independent record store, or stores for that matter.
