Davisville, July 11, 2016: Managing the Last Record Store in Town

Paul Wilbur manages Armadillo Music downtown. Not too many years ago it would have been one of several record stores in our college town, but the big shift to downloads and streaming has decimated the ranks of traditional record shops. On today’s show Paul (shown here holding a Ramones LP at KDRT) talks about how they make the store work, why people still buy CDs and vinyl, types of music that sell well in Davis, and why the Scorpions are his favorite band. “Music makes us feel good,” he says. “Any bad day [for me] can be instantly corrected if I just put on Love at First Sting.”
