I live around the corner from here. I've been living in this neighborhood since 1963. My major first store was on Pulaski and Madison in 1966, and then we traveled around. I can't remember all the stores.

I started in the record business in 1989, a little bit east of here at 4220 W. 63rd. Bought this building in 1999. This part of town is more residential, a little bit out of the way. It's not like I'm in Lincoln Park—we got kids all over the place.

    Record stores for Record Store Day heretics
    Record Store Day's organizers originally promoted it as a celebration of the mom-and-pop shops that had survived music retail's postpiracy nosedive while the likes of Sam Goody and Tower Records collapsed around them. But this international consumer "holiday" turns ten years old on Saturday, April 22, and as early as 2012 the Reader was already asking whether the whole production had jumped the shark.

    The shooting actually occurred on the 6200 block of South Hamlin, next to St. Nicholas of Tolentine School. We heard five rapid shots right around 10:00 p.m. So many people were out and about in the neighborhood because of the warm weather.
