While Record Store Day comes every April, a second event celebrating old-school record happens in August. Although it’s just an American thing for now, Vinyl Record Day will be held tomorrow.
VRD actually pre-dates Record Store Day by six years (est. 2002). August 12 is chosen because that’s the day Thomas Edison unveiled his phonograph in 1877. (Yes, the original phonograph played cylinders and not rotating discs, but never mind.)
What are your plans? Here are some ideas.
