Saturday is National Record Store Day

Budget Music, Minot NDI have been meaning to make this blog post for some time as I am very appreciative of the service our local Record Store provides and what better time to do it then on National Record Store Day.

Our store, Budget Music & Video is located right downtown in Minot. Easy to find, easy to shop.

I myself spend most of my time in the used vinyl area looking for records of my youth. I have owned as many as 2,000 LP's over my lifetime. Regretfully all was lost in 2011 during the flood that destroyed my home but now I am back up to about 300 LP's, 50 tapes, and 100 CD's. Much of my collection has come from Budget Tapes & Music in Minot.

Here are a few pictures giving you a view of a bit of what they have. Don't be fooled, they have far more inventory then what you see here.

Although Budget Music in Minot has been around for 42 years this is just the 12th year of National Record Store Day. Budget Music has participated in every one and Budget Music has a GREAT celebration planned for this Saturday, 4/13/2019, that includes special sale prices, FOOD, & of course music! In conjunction with National Record Day vinyl manufactures (record making companies) will be releasing several new LP's that WILL BE at the store for this event. If you like music you don't want to miss this event!

Bob,

We gave away 3 boxes of records and some 78's from Ron's family to the local store in Carpinteria.  I wish we had known you were a collector...A

Shucks! I wish I would have blogged about it more A. Ron and Alexandra Seigel so you would have picked up on it. Oh well. You could send some warm weather this way, I'd be very happy with that.

Morning Bob.

Back in the day I had some first run 45's from Presley, and others. Of course they are all gone now.  I wonder what some of those would be worth today.

Hi Bob... I think we still have maybe about a dozen record stores in Charlotte... not that I've ever visited one. We got rid of ours years ago... nothing to play them on.

Good morning Bob "RealMan" Timm -  today is a Baby Boomer's dream.  We still have a lot of vinyl but haven't played it.

Good morning Bob. Records are certainly popular again. In the antique gallery where I have a space many vendors sell old records.

Good question James Dray . I never collected for any other purpose then enjoying the music on them so I'm not the one to ask about value.

I came close to having nothing but they are such a big part of my past, a part I look fondly back upon, that I just had to rebuild my stero and record collection after loosing it all in the flood. I know I will have a great time visiting those 12 stores when I come to visit Nina Hollander .

Well said Grant Schneider . Even though I already have a very full day I'm looking forward to squeezing a visit in to Budget Records and Video in Minot.

If it's Rock N Roll I'm sure they go quick in your store Sheila Anderson . The thrift stores here are full of gospel and orchestra music that sits and sits until they eventually throw it away.

Bob "RealMan" Timm I continue to 'sit' on two cases of LPs regardless of Sandy's insistance I get rid of them. They are all part of my memories to be revisited when my mind starts to take a vacation! Your record store is a treasure!

I feel your pain Norm of Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI . I could never get rid of my records. I did give up my killer stereo but after a couple of years with a Crosley all in one piece of crap I had to rebuild a decent system. BTW Endre Barath, Jr. helped me with the finishing touch of a good cassette deck.

Bob you are always so kind, need to see if I still have any  records.... plus I have to watch Diane she is the throw away Queen:) Endre
