It's springtime in New Jersey.

For me, National Record Store Day, in New Jersey, is a rite of spring.

And, while the novel coronavirus has caused numerous cancellations (to put it mildly), it is merely postponing this day that means so much to those of us who love vinyl.

The new date to keep in mind is Saturday June 20th.

36 independent New Jersey record stores are expected to participate...including stores in Trenton, Princeton, Marlton, Red Bank, Jersey City, Belmar, Bayville, Summit, and Asbury Park. For the full list, click here.
