John Schumann talks indie record stores

John Schumann of RedGum and John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew dropped into Songland Records in Canberra recently. Check out the video here.  He’s then emailed again to wish us a great day and make this comment:

“I remember when your record store owner was as important in your life as your butcher. Still is, but good record stores are thin on the ground. These days I get heaps of frustrated emails all the time from people who want to buy my records but can’t find them. I send them to Frog at Songland. Why? Because he owns a record store, knows what he’s talking about and stocks my catalogue. We make them, he sells them. It’s a good arrangement. Happy Record Store Day, Australia! ????”

Thanks for him for his support too!
