Saturday, April 17 is Record Store Day, a day dedicated to the local record shop. We here at the CHRY music department seriously encourage you to get out, go to your local record store and buy something.
There’s no shortage of great local, Canadian and international acts putting out exclusive releases for this special day. And if that wasn’t enough many stores here in Toronto will feature special live performances to put butts in the aisles.
