Acknowledge Antone's Record Store

RECEIVED Thu., Jan. 13, 2005

Dear Editor,
    After reading Christopher Gray’s "TCB" in the Jan. 7 issue [Music] (specifically the "2004 on the Floor" listing about music stores), I realized how frustrating it is for me to see Austin’s own locally flavored newspaper consistently failing to mention the best local record store, Antone’s. Whenever there is an article or mention about the record store business, the point is made that there are few locally owned record shops that are still standing, yet Antone’s is continually omitted from your "surviving record store" list.
    Antone’s has been around for close to 20 years. Not only does Antone’s have an excellent variety of music, they have the largest selection of used records in town. It really is a cool place and deserves to be recognized and respected for the local mainstay that it is. I hope to see this oversight corrected.
Thank you,
Susan Bertman
