Chillicothe's Apollo Records Preparing for Worldwide Record Store Day

-

Record stores across the world are getting ready for this year's worldwide Record Store Day. This Saturday will mark the 12th year of the annual event, dedicated to record culture, record lovers, and the independent record stores all over the world. Inaugurated in 2008, Record Store Day takes place nationally twice per year, with one held on a Saturday in April, and another held on Black Friday.

Chillicothe's last remaining independent record store, Apollo Records, will be participating. Owner & Operator, Jesse Mitten, says they'll have some deals and other attractions taking place throughout the day.

-

"We're getting about 300 limited edition releases," said Mitten. "We're also doing 10-percent off on all of our used records, compact discs, movies and cassettes. We'll also be giving away free donuts, snacks and drinks all day."

Prior to Saturday's worldwide Record Store Day event, Jesse says Apollo Records and Steiner's Speakeasy will get together for a pre-Record Store Day celebration.

-

"We raffle off a turntable and do some record raffles," said Mitten. "I also go with turntables and play vinyl all night. It's a really good time for sure."

-

The pre-Record Store Day celebration will take place this Thursday, April 11th at Steiner's Speakeasy from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Jesse says tickets for the raffle can be obtained at Steiner's during the event, and you do not need to be present to win.
