'Chronicle' Ignores, Relegates, Neglects, and Baffles
RECEIVED Fri., Jan. 23, 2004
Dear Editor, You ignore our amazing 20th birthday party [Sound Exchange], you relegate our closing to a small box (complete with a baffling reference to Buffalo Exchange), and when you finally put us on the cover, almost exactly a year after our death, there is not one word about us in the copy ... and not really much to the article, either ["Is Sound Exchange's Fate the Future of All Record Stores?," Music, Jan. 23]. Glad to see some things haven't changed in Austin.
Craig Koon Former Sound Exchange Manager Phoenix, Ariz.
[Editorial response: Ignored? Hardly. We covered the 20th anniversary both before and after , while the store's closing was covered in full as part of a cover story, Rent Party Blues, Music, Feb. 14, 2003.]
