Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

New Record Store in Bend!

A Brand New Used Record store on Bond St.

Posted By on Thu, Oct 4, 2012 at 9:25 PM

Last week, a curious Craigslist ad about a new record store opening up in town, was posted right under my nose.

So, I immediately made my way to Recycle Music L.L.C. on the corner of Arizona and Bond street, across from Strictly Organic Coffee and popped in for a visit.

I was greeted by the establishment's owner Keith, and we started talking about music and the opening of his store. He brought up his love for early Jayhawks music as well as Son Volt and Uncle Tupelo while he showed me around the new digs and I picked out a Ryan Adams record to purchase.


The store contains thousands of used vinyl records (an entire bin dedicated to The Beatles), hundreds of used CD's, KISS dolls, used DVD's, posters, and even used stereo equipment and turntables.
Keith took me out to a second building he called a "barn" and showed me just how he plans to replenish his stock of records. The guy has got stacks and stacks of boxes containing thounds more LPs to put out as he sells down his inventory. More Beatles, more Hendrix, more of everything. He also has several folding tables lined up that he explained will eventually be used to set up some of the stereo equipment so that people can listen to full systems before deciding to buy. I instantly suggested he make it into a listening lounge where we all kick back with beers and headphones (we'll see if he takes me up on that).

Prices are absolutely reasonable and I can easily see myself getting into trouble there if I don't set spending limits before entering. So go check out Recycle Music L.L.C. at 3 NW Bond St.. You'll probably find something to buy. (I know I'll go back soon because I'm kicking myself for not leaving there with a "The Thing For Class President" button.)

Hours are 10:30 a.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
