A documentary about vinyl will get a special internet release to benefit local record stores across the country during this work stoppage.

Many of my friends have hobbies like golfing, fishing, hunting, bowling, gambling, motorcycles, or classic cars to name a few. For me, I'm all about Rock music. I like to go to live shows. My idea of a fun Saturday is hitting a bunch of local record stores. The good thing about being "sheltered at home," I've pulled out my vinyl collection and been jamming tunes in the basement like back in high school.

Music fans like me are very lucky in Rockford. We have some great record stores including Culture Shock, Toad Hall, and CD Source. By the way, you can still support these places while they are temporarily closed because of COVID-19. You can make online orders and have them shipped to you. Might as well spend the extra time listening to good music.

I know it's a financially hard time right now for many businesses, especially the small local ones. I saw some good news posted on Culture Shock's Facebook page earlier today.

"The makers of the VINYL NATION documentary are giving 100% of the ticket sales to this online screening of the VINYL NATION documentary to Culture Shock and other indie shops!!! Culture Shock happens to be one of these cool indie shops. The guys who made Vinyl Nation, are doing this because they love record stores and grew up on them."

"Please click HERE to get your ticket and help support Culture Shock and a cool indie film about VINYL. Tickets are available until Fri Apr 17, and viewing will be Apr 18-19."

It sounds like something cool to see while helping a good cause.
