FAREWELL
WEBSTER RECORD SHOP

After 58 years of selling vinyl records,
8 track and cassette tapes and CDs,
Webster Records closed its doors on January 31.

Specializing in jazz, pop and classical music,
Webster Records has long been a favorite
for collectors and music buffs
in homey Webster Groves, Missouri.

It will be sad to see this favorite indie record store
go the way of gramophones and 8-track tape players.

Fans took advantage of incredible discounts
on its remaining inventory this past month.
All is gone now . . .
including its stock of 45's and LP's.

(Did Linda Ronstadt really have "bird legs"?)
Oh my!

  1. Es una pena que establecimientos emblemáticos como este cierren sus puertas y con ello, se acaba una parte de la historia de la música, los discos de vinilo han pasado a mejor vida. Un abrazo Rick

  2. NOOOOOOOO!!! Goodbye to yesterday. Sigh. I suppose not many people will invest on vinyl. Some young people may not even know what that is. and not too many companies produce phonographs. Our childhood is going away ... I love the sign. Hmn, someone will buy that.

    1. My sister's son was amazed to discover the flip side of record albums. He said, "you mean there's music on the other side, too?" Amazing!

  3. Unfortunately there are few relics of those who enjoy ... it's a shame to get rid ...

    I keep a few vinyl records to eternal remembrance, my mother's things ...
