Rockaway will NOT be participating in RSD 2016

Dear Rockaway Friends, Supporters and Record Store Day Fans,

It's official. We will NOT be participating in Record Store Day 2016 on April 16. This will come as little or no surprise to those of you who follow our store happenings and are aware that we also did not participate in RSD Black Friday 2015.

April 16 will become our version of a customer appreciation day. We WILL still be having a storewide sale at our brick & mortar store on that day; we just won't be carrying any Record Store Day product.

The reasons behind this decision are the same as those behind our decision to bow out of RSD Black Friday. There's no need to go into all the details that we previously set forth; suffice to say that we believe the spirit of the day is not what it used to be and that the benefits we derive from participation are no longer offset by the amounts of time, effort and costs required for us to adequately take part.

Please stay tuned for more details about our sale and the happenings we have planned for it. Spoiler alert: there will be live music, great giveaways and lots of fresh discounted kick-ass vinyl, CDs, DVDs/Blu-Rays… and more!

Sincerely,

Your Pals at Rockaway

Remembering The Capitol Swap Meet

On the weekend of October 24th and 25th, 2015, Rockaway Records set up a booth at the inaugural WAX Record Fair in the parking lot of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood. It was very poignant for us at Rockaway since my brother (and Rockaway co-owner) Wayne and I first started selling records in the adjacent parking lot back in 1978! That was at a monthly record show informally called "The Capitol Swap Meet", although, unlike the WAX Record Fair, there was no formal connection to Capitol Records itself. The location certainly brought back some great (and not so great) memories of those days. Continue reading
