‘Tis the season! Here’s a quick rundown of easy gifts we offer all year round that make great gifts for the music lover in your life.
If you know a person that loves to spend time digging through and finding something that catches their eye in our shop then a Gift Certificate is certainly a great gift! You can stop by and pick one up or buy on online here:
If you’d like buy a Gift Certificate of a greater or different amount than any of the options please feel free to buy them in whatever quantity equals the amount you’d like. Gift Certificates bought online are kept on file (we don’t mail them out) and you’ll get a receipt via email. Just make sure to let us know who it should be on file for please (if it’s not apparent to us we’ll email you to ask). We’ll email you a picture of it using the email used to purchase the Gift Certificate for you to print out and put in a card or however you choose to use it!
Of course, if you have a list to go by we are happy to take a look at it and help with any titles we may have in stock or possibly special order – sooner the better for that as always. We have plenty of standards in stock as well as not so standards!
We open at 8AM on Friday November 26th, 2021 – BLACK FRIDAY!
We will have RSD Black Friday items; the ones we’ll have are listed below. The store is also open for general shopping and everything is on sale all weekend!
We are asking folks for their own safety in our industrial area parking lot not to show up before 6AM please.
The social media we use most is Instagram. Please do follow us there for regular stock updates and occasional announcements.(Reminder: if you haven’t been to our store in a while – we moved last November and are now at 69 South Turnpike Road, Wallingford, CT 06492 – in the same building as the Battery Shop.)
Masks are still required here so please have one at the ready. 😷
The waiting area for RSD items will be in front of our large bay door. It will be obvious when you arrive, but just to clarify the large bay door is the second bay door to the right of our normal front entrance door.
Parking can be found in the normal area that is painted in our lot and overflow parking is basically in the abutting lots.
Please be safe and mindful of those around you. Dress weather appropriate. We’ll do our best to get you out of the cold as safely and efficiently as we can.
Tommy Harte from Broken Vow joins us on the podcast this month. We talk about how a band forms and records in a pandemic. We talk about Edge Day. We talk about the influences that went in to forming Broken Vow. We talk about the music we’re all listening to and lots more including what are Train fans called?!
Well we certainly talked some inside baseball with Amanda this month! I (Rick) took liberties with editing on this. It’ll make for a more amusing listen if you don’t have deep inside knowledge of music retail. If you are in music retail it’s not so disguised that you maybe can’t figure out the companies discussed. Y’know, MEGACORP!? I also took the opportunity to add some spooky sounds since this is episode that is most current for Halloween. Heck, you may even figure out your own side story to go along with those sounds.
Oh yeah, so we talked about music retail business, record shows, the various stores Amanda has worked at from Slipped Disc to Needle & Groove, and Generation to her job as a representative at All Media Supply and her work putting on record shows with Vinyl Revolution. We also talk about what we’re listening to, what Amanda is listening to and what Amanda grew up listening to including her musical background.
