Today's site of the day is Grand Poo-bas Record Shoppe in Lakewood, Ohio. The owner, Doug Burkhart has been referred to in the past as the "glue that keeps the electronic music scene in Cleveland together," and I have to agree. Besides being one of our most respected DJs, he's a great guy, too! Vinyl record stores have been hit hard with many DJs transferring over to CDs and computer-driven deejaying, so I thought it was important to remind everyone that you can still buy records and they sound way better than CDs and a million zillion times better than mp3s. My record collection is my prized possession. It's an extension of who I am, and is strongly connected to countless memories. Plus, the album art is so much better at twelve inches by twelve inches. Poo-bas also sells CDs, so even if you're not a DJ, you can still shop in the store or order online if you don't live in the Cleveland area. Save the vinyl! Doug is also the founder and head administrator of the website Clevelandnightlife.net. Stop by the site and find out what's going on in and around Northeast Ohio. There's always some kind of shenanigans going on.
