Celebrity Sighting

Taking stock of people we’ve sold to through Redscroll brings a small impressive list to mind (Henry Rollins, David Byrne and very recently, Matt Groening). Woah, right? Seriously.

None of those people have been seen on video inside the store, unfortunately. Let’s hope this video I’m about to post of a small local celebrity starts the trend.

Anthony hosts the Needle Drop website as well as the Needle Drop radio show on WNPR (which is also syndicated on my home station of WESU).

On this note, you might have noticed (this week in particular) that I’m trying to add a bit more content (rather than just stock updates) to our blog. Let me know your thoughts on that. Would you like to see more videos? Would you like to see more local celebrity sightings? I could just post my face on here everyday (joke). Band interviews? In any event, look forward to more and more content coming via this page. We’ve also got some bigger developments (related) coming down the line so stay tuned (refresh often).

RSD NOTE: I will be posting a stock update later that will include the Record Store Day items that we will have available tomorrow (when we open at 10AM).

Rick on the Radio 11PM Tonight

Yea, so I (Rick) will be on the airwaves for the first time in a long time tonight. For those that don’t know I’m a long time volunteer at a few community stations (stints at WFCS, WNHU and for the longest time at WESU). I’ve done a variety of radio shows rooted in my love of free-form radio over the years.

Tonight, the show I’ve put together will be a dubstep tutorial. Yes. I’ll be going through the time-line from the roots of this new genre (barely 10 years old – of course, the roots go much deeper – I’ll just be touching on the deeper end). So, if you enjoy dubstep or if you know nothing about it this should be a good fun listen whether you know the whole bit or none at all.


11PM-1AM
WESU broadasts at 88.1FM from Middletown, CT. You can listen online as well at:
