Would you like to spend an hour listening to and participating in a
discussion of vinyl records? Yes, you read correctly, vinyl records. Joe
Schwab, proprietor of Euclid Records in St. Louis, Missouri, will be our
guest. In love with music, he started working in a record store as a
teenager and has never looked back. A record store owner for 28 years, Joe
sells both vinyl and CDs totaling a million dollars in sales annually. As CD
sales drop, Schwab has been seeing an increase in the sales of vinyl by
buyers experiencing many classics for the very first time. Why are they
finding vinyl so attractive? Joe says, "They love the sound and artwork."
Sales of turntables are growing, bringing even more new customers to Euclid
Records. Forward thinking, Joe Schwab saw the value of selling online in the
early 90s. To show just how significant this is, he says this predates the
beginning of Amazon.com. On Sept. 1, Joe opened his first branch 700 miles
away in New Orleans, because "they needed a record store and didn't have
one." Planning to open more branches all over the country, Joe loves talking
about music. Local bands play in his St. Louis store. Their music is
recorded on 45s on the Euclid record label. If you love music, are looking
for music you just can't find, or wish to talk about the days of vinyl, Joe
Schwab and this show is the one for you. Start time will be 8 p.m. eastern
time in the Books And Beyond Room on Accessibleworld.org. Please arrive a
few minutes early for this spectacular guest.
