Saturday August 12th is National Vinyl Record Day

Saturday, August 12th commemorates National Vinyl Record Day! Ya know those black round things with small grooves in them?  Your parents may even have a vinyl record or two from back in the day.   

If you own any vinyl records, celebrate by dusting off an album of your favorite artist and play it on the turntable!  Here’s one of my all-time favorite albums – Michael Jackson’s Thriller album.

Vinyl records are referred to based on rotational speed.  The RPM’s, or revolutions per minute of the more popular vinyls are:

  • 78  –  (one of the first vinyl record discs)
  • 45 – (known as singles)
  • 33 1/3  – (known as albums)

Vinyl records left the mainstream in 1991. They continued to be manufactured and have started to become increasingly popular with collectors and audiophiles.

Today, you can purchase vinyl records at:

  • Barnes and Noble
  • Best Buy
  • Coconuts
  • Heriloom Records
  • Book and Music Exchange
  • Wal Mart
  • Joe’s Records – Evansville
  • The Book Broker

If you know of a place here in the Tri-State area that sells vinyl records (new or old) please let us know and we’ll add it to our list!
