Rough news for one of my favorite record stores. in Montpelier VT suffered some major flood damage last night. We want to help Knayte and co. recover however we can. There’s a gofundme established to help them rebuild. Additionally we are auctioning off a Special Cranker overdrive pedal. There were only five of these babies made. We want all proceeds from the auction to go to Buch Spieler. So we are doing this silent auction style. If you’d like to make a bid send a direct message with your bid amount. Auction ends on Sunday at noon. Lowest possible bid is $100. Make your best offer for a chance to win and to help out great people at a great shop. Thanks!

Last week we lost our good friend Matt. Matt helped out at the shop for several years up until 2019 and no doubt many of you remember him for his calm presence and sly sense of humor. He thought deeply about art, movies and music. We loved having him as part of our record store family. He was a fixture in Highland Square for so many years and we will miss him dearly.

Matthew Andrews Vollmer, 48, of Akron, Ohio, died June 27, 2023. He leaves behind his mother, Joan Colbert, brother, Scott Vollmer, and nephew,...
