V-103’s Greg Street kicks knowledge about Independent Retail Day, which is today. Greg wants you to get out and support the few local record stores still doing business in our community. Our music will not survive if all the record stores in our communities shut down because the majority of our people aren’t buying songs off iTunes. If the record labels can’t sell our music then it dies.
A lot of readers email me asking about advice on making it in the music business. But I have no experience in that field. Industry vets like Greg Street have a wealth of knowledge on the music biz and they don’t mind sharing. He’s one of the top DJs in the country. I just got off the phone with Greg and I learned a few things that I didn’t know. Such as: Soulja Boy has the #1 record in New York with “Turn My Swag On” — and he has two records in the top ten in the country. <– Now I see why they call SB a genius!
