It's Record Store Day around the world today and here in Australia many of our major artists are out visiting stores to meet the fans.
Even visiting international acts are taking part, like Cheech and Chong who are performing in Melbourne tonight. They'll be at JB Hi-Fi in Elizabeth Street. And Ronan Keating will be at Mall Music in the Sydney suburb of Brookvale.
Record Store Day is all about celebrating the place where we have traditionally been buying our music for many decades. It's an on-line download generation these days, but the good old record store is still far from dead, with so many of us still buying the good old CD.
And even more interesting is the vinyl revival that seems to be happening. More artists are releasing albums on vinyl, just like in the good old days.
Downloads may be here to stay but it's funny how fads go around, just like a 12 inch round piece of vinyl on a turntable.
