      Vinyl Meetups happening everwhere!

      A while back, we started a Meetup group her in NYC so local record lovers could get together, support local stores, and trade vinyl tips. It's been a blast. Since then, several cities have started their own Vinyl Meetups including a great one in San Francisco (they have a Meetup tomorrow!)

      Now, we're happy to announce that we are going global. We created a Vinyl Meetup Everywhere so anyone in any city could connect with fellow vinyl lovers and meet face to face. It's

      Here's how it works:

      • Simply visit
      • Find / start a nearby Meetup (totally free and super simple)
      • Click "I'm interested" to show that you're down for meeting up
      • Share the link with your fellow vinyl lovers - tweet it, facebook it, blog it, install the widget (see right), etc.
      • Coordinate the date / time with others that have signed up
      • Meet in person to have a record swap, visit a store, or have a listening party (you name it)!

      Here's a realtime map of what's going on. Let's see where we can take this and keep vinyl lovers connected everywhere!

      Interview: James Bradley of Sound Fix

      We're excited to bring you an interview with James Bradley, owner of Sound Fix and fellow vinyl aficionado. Sound Fix is a great record store in Brooklyn located at 44 Berry Street in Williamsburg. I had the chance to meet James and check out his amazing store last week during Record Store Day. Here's more about how he got started with vinyl, opening a record store and more. Enjoy!

      Display vinyl for around $5 / record

      I was looking  for simple, yet nice way to display some records on my wall. My main requirements were that it was cheap,  that I could easily take the records down to play / change the display, and that no part of the record would be at risk of being damaged.

      Here's how I did it:

      1. Take four 13"stretcher bars (used to stretch canvas for paintings) that I picked up here for $1.00 each

      2. Assemble to make a 13" square

      3. Apply one sticky side of velcro strips to the four corners of the square and expose the other sticky side

      4. Stick a record that is in a nice plastic sleeve (opening on the top) to the sticky part





      The end result: a simple frame that allows me to easily swap out records.

      Next, I'll be filling in the gaps in the wood and painting it with a nice white enamel.
