Diana Ross. Live. Not in concert but nonetheless, guaranteed to be an interesting evening. Ross will be the next speaker at the Brinker International Forum on April 28. And, thanks to the folks at the Forum, we will give away a pair of tickets every day this week. First one to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org [...]
I originally intended to stay at Good Records‘ day-long National Record Store Day celebration (cheekily dubbed “Revolution 9″) for maybe an hour, tops.

It’s cheap and easy today to purchase music online or at a big box retailer. That’s why there are only a handful of independent record stores left in North Texas. On Saturday, several of them will celebrate National Record Store Day with special events and concerts. KERA’s Stephen Becker recently hung out at one store to find out how it continues to thrive.
