Wasn't aware of it but am now :D

I'm afraid all our local record shops disappeared a loooooooong time ago :(

But I shall celebrate by treating the kids to a marathon cd session. I think we'll start off with some Saturday Night Fever...

Really? Well there are still plenty of amazing gold mines out there. A few of my fav's include:

JIMS - Reading: http://justimaginationmemorabilia.blogspot.co.uk/
Alan's records - East Finchley: http://www.alansrecords.com/page2.html
Wanted Music - Beckenham: http://www.vinylhunt.com/stores/704
In Living Stereo - New York: http://inlivingstereo.com/
Piccadilly Record - Manchester: http://www.piccadillyrecords.com/counter/index.php
Rough Trade (East) - Brick Lane, London: http://www.roughtrade.com/

You'd be surprised how many are left if you do a little digging ;-)

Spent my first student loan on some 1210's. They were lovely. Had to sell them by the end of the first term as I was terminally skint, but it was a pleasure owning them.

I've had mine just over a year now and they've been an absolute pleasure to use. They really are as good as the hype: the Chris King of the DJ world. Totally reliable, look great and are built to last forever.

Before I had a pair of pretty basic belt drive things which were fine for messing on but hopeless in every other way.

There's a petition going around at the moment to get Panasonic to re-start production. Sadly I think it's a non-starter :-(

I just did a search on the website... I really hadn't realised how many stored I have in my area.

We have a great little independent shop in Weston-s-Mare, but Raves from the Graves in Frome has been my local for years.

I'm on my 4th set. I've bought and had to sell various pairs over the years, but have a nice set of MK3's now.
I had some brand new 1200 MK5's a few years ago, then my flat flooded and I needed the funds for the repairs :roll:
I tried CDJ's last year and hated them.
Do you only use vinyl? I use a mix of vinyl and serato and find it covers all bases :D

It took me years to be pursuaded to dry a move to the dark side :lol:
I started djing weddings etc a few years back and that was the driver behind trying serato really.
There's a hell of a lot less to carry, plus it's easier to deal with requests.
I still use my 1210's with it though, just with the time-coded vinyl
