It’s Record Store Day Eve, so get to bed early so you can wake up and get in line at your favorite neighborhood store! Many KEXP DJs and staff will be in line, too, hoping to get some of the items below. (Part one of their lists is posted here, and DJ Kevin Cole shares his highlights here.) Plus, check out all these different events around town!
All week long on The Afternoon Show, DJ Kevin Cole has been chatting with local record store entrepreneurs, and today’s guest is:

I also found this really good Vice/Noisey article talking about how vinyl production in this country is sliding into a shitty space partially thanks to larger acts and labels trying to cash in on the vinyl “trend” (I don’t know about the trend, I’ve been buying underground punk and metal vinyl since I was 13). But it’s worth a read and brings up some valid points.
