I Was Raised On Music
Like my dad was a DJ and my mom a music teacher. Music has always been a constant part of my life. It’s not something I could live without.
So when I met my boyfriend and he introduced me to actual vinyls I fell in love… with him and with the records. Through our travels together we’ve come upon a few different record stores and naturally have found one close to home in Lubbock.
It's called Ralph's Records and its stacked.
As soon as you walk in you see not only wall to wall vinyl but CD’s and old school tapes. The staff is super chill and willing to help you find whatever you’re looking for or just chat about upcoming bands. They sell rock concert tickets at Ralph’s as well, but that’s not really my genre. You can check out what’s upcoming on their website.
Matthew and I have scored some pretty sweet albums from Ralph’s over the past 7 months. Check out some of our fav’s:
