Phonograph records, also known as "records" or "vinyl" by many, have been around for a long time.

Depending on your age you may have grown up listening to music, comedy, and even stories on vinyl, as that was the available format back in the day.  Even if you didn't grow up with much vinyl around, you probably at least know what it is because of a relative that still listened to music that way.

Vinyl has made a comeback in more recent years, with plenty of artists releasing new material on it, as well as online, and still on compact discs.  Some say the sound is better on vinyl, that it can be more full sounding.  Others, even some audiophiles that I know, claim it's trash, but it's okay to be wrong.  I personally appreciate vinyl, though admittedly I'm between record players at the time.  My last one wasn't the best quality and I haven't sprung for a decent player quite yet, as a place to put it and the speakers to back it up is something I need to make the space for.

While I might not have the player currently, I still purchase actual vinyl albums to help further my collection with new music that is released and also classics.  If you are in the market for music on vinyl, you might want to check out Round Here Records.  Not only can you shop for vinyl with them online, they on the regular have pop-up shop days in the Twin Ports area.  They also support local music, which makes them even better.

The next pop-up event with Round Here Records is on Sunday, November 14th from 10:00AM-1:00PM at Wussow's Concert Cafe.  Even if you're not in the market for vinyl, you might find some cassettes or compact discs you didn't know you needed.  It's for sure worth checking out and with Christmas right around the corner, vinyl can be a great gift for the lover of that classic format in your life.
