Skippy White has announced he'll be shutting his eponymous Egleston Square record store after the New Year:
With sales dwindling over the last several years on CD'S and even with some added LP vinyl sales, it looks like the end is in sight. We will down price everything in the store. Come in and take advantage of our going out of business sale. We've been in business since 1961, that's almost 59 years so come on in the store . Remember, everything is on sale. If it isn't nailed down, it's got to go. And thank you for your support all these years.
It's been a long rough and rocky road. It's great to know that you are remembered and appreciated. I've been asked how long the store will remain open. At least through the end of the year and until most or all of the inventory is sold off. In the meantime this does not effect the radio shows I do. The "Time Tunnel " is still on Saturday morning from 8 to 11 and the "Gospel Train " can be heard Sunday morning from 7 to 10. If you download the app, "98.1FM The Urban Heat ", you can listen on your smartphone. Because the Urban Heat is currently not on the radio (don't give up hope), I am starting another edition of the "Gospel Train " on WBCA-FM 102.9 this Sunday at 6 p.m.
