While thousands thumbed through used vinyl at the WFMU Record Fair over the weekend, New York lost another record store. Disc-O-Rama, which first opened in 1976 and had a few locations in Manhattan, closed its last store over the weekend which was located on W. 8th St (between Macdougal and 6th Ave.) "Thank you New York. It has been an epic ride, starting with vinyl, to cassettes, CDs and back to vinyl again. Who would have thunk it!!!" Sorry to see you go, Disc-O-Rama, but their online store remains open.
NYC still have lots of record stores, though less than there used to be, and you can check out our roundup of Brooklyn record stores you may not know about.
