If you reading this, then you probably did not go up in smoke yesterday, just kidding. I know quite the few people celebrated 4/20 day with festivities, especially in Missouri since this is the first year of recreational use in the state. Though I don’t participate in the chronic smoke, music has always been that high for me.

This weekend, the annual Record Store Day will return on April 22. Nation wide, Record Store Day has become a huge deal, whether you are lover of vinyl records or simply enjoy music this will be a good time to go to check out your local record stores. Record Store Day usually involves a lot of sales on vinyl records along with entertainment and treats for those looking for music to add to their repertoire. Maybe instead of streaming this week, you may actually pick up a physical copy of something on record.
