No one taking part in this?
It's not really my scene, I must say, with huge amounts of product (most of it dire pap) going straight on eBay, if they're not on there already.
Ironically, it's almost certainly the ONLY day of the year I won't be going into a record shop.
I'm a bit like you Oldbrownshoe. I don't really need a special day to go to a record store. It'll bring out all the once a year crowd anyway. Lowers the tone.
Admittedly where I live there's little choice in record stores anyway. I think there's one small one in Canberra. I usually wait to travel to Sydney, Perth or Melbourne.
