One Question Interviews: Rhino / Mad Platter Record Store

Dennis Callaci (Rhino Records/Mad Platter/Video Paradiso-General Manager)

SPB: When do you start planning for Record Store Day on a given year?

Callaci: Record Store Day falls on Saturday April 18th this year, and for this year's event we have been working since late last year to get things in line.  Besides all of the nifty releases for the day that take a good amount of time to order and get in line, we have set up some great events at both stores. Dengue Fever will be playing a live set at Rhino at 3pm, and we will be hosting a screening of the film "Records Collecting Dust" (Jello Biafra, Mike Watt, and others on their record collections) at 7:30 at both stores as well as more to be announced. Logistically, we work on making the experience as fair and easy for our customers as we can, as there are hundreds of folks lined up outside of our doors before we open. This means forecasting deep on titles and trying to cover the bases so there are as few disappointments as feasible. We want the day to be a celebration of record stores, and the artists that have made brick and mortar as important as water and air to us music freaks.
