Tu(n)esday: Storefronts...

As I’ve been to record stores like Kiss the Sky and Purple Dog Records and book/record stores like 2nd & Charles (closing in a couple weeks) and Half Price Books enough to know their cassette inventories pretty well, I’m cobbling together a list of other local must-see places I’ve never seen to visit in the very near future. 

Rediscover Records, 9 S. Spring St., Elgin


Mile Long Records, 350 W. Front St., Wheaton


4A Song, 1045 Burlington Ave., #6, Lisle


Green Tangerine Records, 838 W. Lincoln Hwy., DeKalb


Should be fun to check them out. And I really love that Green Tangerine name. Them and Purple Dog make for a colorful collection.

Makes me all nostalgic for the record shops I went into as a teenager.


I had four or five just in the town where I went to college!

I like that you have some you frequent and are near you.

Oh the memories of record stores. I have one that is less than 3 miles from my house - Graywhale Records. They do a great business in vinyl and now cassettes. From my growing up years, there were local ones and chains. Tower Records and Licorice Pizza were the two I went to a lot (and spent a lot of money at, too)


I think you still owe me some pics of the cassette variety at Graywhale.
