Slim Picking On Delmarva For National Record Store Day

47 ABC - Put down the iPod, log out of iTunes, and hit the record store.  Saturday, April 19th is National Record Store Day.

Created back in 2007, it was designed as a way to celebrate the culture of the unique record store.  One devoted record retailer in the area told us why he thinks there's something special about the experience of buying music in an actual store.

"You meet a lot of neat people and get to learn a lot about music.  That's why I got into record collecting," says Matthew Gunby, owner of U Dig? Records in Salisbury, "you tend to see things and become aware of new music that you might not've seen online."

Being able to download music at home has apparently crippled the mom-and-pop record store business.  47 ABC could only find a few here on Delmarva, but if you know others, feel free to comment below.
