Once a week — minimum — Denise Martin and friends would mosey on down to Green Street to partake in a favorite pastime — flipping through all the albums at Record Swap and Record Service.

“There were posters all over the walls; the albums — yes, vinyl — were located upstairs; and it relaxed me the minute I walked in the door.

"We would sometimes bring back albums to swap but more often we simply bought more music. That was in the day when you would buy the album for the hit song on the radio but ended up loving the other songs on the album even more. 

"I am pretty sure the reason I had a job in college was to support my Record Swap/Service habit — oh, and maybe a few visits to Kam’s.”
