This week marked the 20th anniversary of Carl's independently-owned record store, Tune Town. So, in honor of this, we decided to play some albums that were either popular-sellers or were regularly heard playing throughout the store back in 1993 when he first opened the doors. It goes without saying that independent record stores are a dying breed these days; but, in our humble (and unashamedly biased) opinion, they remain such an invaluable resource and gathering place in any community - THE place for music fans to convene. Sure, you can access and buy virtually anything you want online, but we couldn't imagine living in a world where the only destination for "real world" music culture is perusing the latest issue of Rolling Stone in the aisles of Target. That is, simply put, a damn NIGHTMARE. Get out and support a record store near you.
