McG’s Backroom takes an in-depth look at Record Store Day 2017 and what the event means to independent records stores.
Joining McG in the Backroom is Todd Brewer from Rainbow Records, the current owner of a record store that has been open for nearly 30 years on Main Street in Newark, Delaware.
Todd and McG discuss the importance of independent record stores and the importance of creating a comfortable record store shopping experience. From there, McG and Todd assess the Record Store Day 2017 list from the heavy hitters to the obscure gems.
Lastly, Todd fires up a crazy RSD-inspired mix of R&B, jazz, weird electronic music and peculiar obscurities. And oh yeah, we review the Dogfish Head Beer to Drink Music to 2017 edition.
Record Store Day 2017 is April 22, 2017. Go shop local and support your independent record store!
