Vinyl Record Day

Vinyl Record Day – a day for those vinyl records that you can listen to music on. #VinylRecordDay

Vinyl Records are making a come back. They were very popular going into the 1990’s. And even now in the late 2010’s.

You could listen to people like The Beatles, Elivs Presley, The Monkees and more.

I remember we had some records growing up as a child and one with Eddie Rabbit. Not to mention, my sister and I would always listen to Santa and the Three Bears on record during Christmas. Plus, we had many more, those are two of the ones I remember.
