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 13th, 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.


Throughout the week of April 8th-12th, KEXP will be giving away some of these rare Record Store Day releases. Tune in to win!  And tune in to The Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole on Friday, April 12th as he previews many of these exclusive releases. For many of the titles, it’ll be the first time any of us worldwide get to hear these songs!
