a sad day coming

Sam the Record Man is closing.

Sam the Record Man, was a Yonge Street icon since 1961. It was once Canada's top music retailer.

They announced yesterday, that they will be closing its doors for good next month.

I spent a few Saturday afternoons browsing the records [yes, I'm that old!] at Sam's. You could go there, and if you were looking for something, the staff knew exactly where it was & what else you might like.

Sam's was more than a record store. Founder Sam Sniderman, was an icon, the godfather of the Canadian recording-industry.

To quote Bob Dylan: "The times' they are a changing"
