Hackensack Record King
« on: April 30, 2010, 03:46:33 PM »
Last summer i visited the "new" Record King on Main St, across the street from where he used to be next to the Oritani. I hadn't been in the old store since the late 70's (i bought english imports and the Ace Frehley solo album in 1978) and was never in the new store until last August. I was glad to see the original owner Craig still in the store too.
If you're into vinyl still like i am, check him out...anyone here been in either the old or new store?

Took a ride into town yesterday to visit my old favorite record store again. Craig was his usual gentleman to me and my wife, our daughter is really into used vinyl so I got her a gift certificate for the store (i wanted to buy her a shirt too but he had no more). Anyway, Main St was all torn up for many blocks there...amidst all the dust we got a slice at the pizzeria across the street (which was a little disappointing actually, not as good as I remembered it)
His gift certificate was so cool, he put a little embossed stamp on it to prove it's authentic too! We'll probably head over there on Black Friday, this time I'll skip the pizza though... :-\

I happened to be searching Uncle Floyd on You Tube and found his Uncle Floyd New Jersey and was happy to find his Hackensack episode, and a nice visit to the Record King
