WILMINGTON, DELAWARE - Driving by the corner of Marsh and Grubb roads near Arden, Wally’s World Resale Shop is impossible to miss. Its giant red and yellow “We buy gold and diamonds” sign is quite the attention-getter.
But when it comes to the 8-month-old Jupiter Records located across the street, you almost have to know it’s there to see it.
Even so, the region’s community of vinyl collectors is a close one and thanks to the store’s active Facebook page and word-of-mouth, Jupiter Records has quickly grown into one of the state’s best independent record shops.
For music lovers, going to the record store is more than just a quick trip to pick up an album. It’s an experience. You browse through countless racks of quality tunes, chat a little with the all-knowing owner, and hopefully discover your new favorite song. Now there’s a holiday to celebrate just that: Record Store Day. Yes, your dreams have come true!

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN - Fox Valley singer-songwriter Christopher Gold has released two full-length albums in recent years, but he’s yet to put out a record. A real record, that is — a carved, spiraling platter of vinyl that spins at 45 or 33.3 revolutions per minute and, for a time, was seen as old-fashioned.
“I haven’t gotten to release vinyl yet, but if I had the means that would certainly be my preference,” said Gold, who’s planning a third solo release and a 7-inch single for summer.
