This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: This year’s Record Store Day will be April 20. This annual event began in 2008 as about 300 U.S. stores celebrated independent record stores here in the US and around the world and grew to a worldwide celebration that is held at thousands of retail locations.

The largest Record Store Day events in St. Louis will take place at Euclid Records in Webster Groves, Vintage Vinyl in University City’s Delmar Loop and at APOP Records on Cherokee Street.

The owner of Vintage Vinyl in St. Louis was one of 15 small business owners who met with President Obama today.

Lew Prince is a member of Business for Shared Prosperity, an organization that is pushing Congress to end the Bush-era tax cuts for the top two percent.

Prince says the meeting at the White House this afternoon was unusual because no one was asking for anything for themselves.
