What began as a humble way of getting people to shop mom-and-pop record stores is now an international celebration: it's Record Store Day, and this Saturday, April 21st, music fans everywhere will wake up early and flock to their favorite local record store to fill their shopping bags with wax, ranging from 7"s containing new music to rare reissues of albums that have been out-of-print for decades.

This year boasts yet another jaw-dropping lineup of exclusive releases, and, as always, KEXP is here to help you plan your attack. Hear exclusive streams, check out Q&A's, and more.

And tune in on Wednesday, April 18th to The Roadhouse as DJ Greg Vandy will be joined by Brad Tilbe, manager/curator of the Light In The Attic Record Shop, and on Friday, April 20th, as The Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole welcomes Matt Vaughan, owner/president of Easy Street Records.
