WGN Radio Interview with Rediscover Records

Link: WGN Interview with Rediscover Records

On January 26, 2023 the 50,000 Blowtorch that is WGN Radio (AM Radio 720) featured the City of Elgin as part of their "Your Hometown" series. Several businesses and organizations were interviewed throughout the day including yours truly, Rich from Rediscover Records. *The* legendary DJ John "Records" Landecker (he's in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, ya know) was the host and the segment is about 8 minutes long, which is about 5 minutes shorter than most prog rock songs, haha.

Dollar Records are "3 for $1"

Our dollar bins are in the back section of the shop. While dollar bins are what they are, you might be surprised at some of the artists you may find there. You read it correctly! Our Dollar Records are "3 for a $1"! So get three 33-1/3rpm records for a mere 33-1/3 cents (See what we did there?) but the only catch is you must buy in 3's and even if you only find one, it's still only $1. What a deal!

Classical and/or Opera LPs Special

When shopping in-store, all of our classical and/or opera records are as price or get the special price of "3 for $10". All of them are reasonably priced regardless with most of them less than $9 and some under $5 but why not get 3 of them for $10? This includes the Box Sets of Classical and Opera as well. One trait of classical and opera LPs is that the original owners took very good care of them. Records are typically clean and any inserts that may have been included are left intact. Take advantage of getting a Box Set, or Bach's Set, today! #HEYO!!!
