What's happening with Indie music stores in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh City Paper music writer Jordan Snowden stopped by the Evening Mix to talk with Liz Felix about the state of independent record stores in Pittsburgh.

Dave’s Music Mine on the South Side will be closing soon, but the city has welcomed a few new record stores recently, and some long-time stores are still going strong.

Program Director & Block Party Host Liz Felix joined WYEP in 2019 after working for a public radio show called BirdNote in Seattle. Felix started her career as a DJ at her college station at the University of Illinois and has worked as a Program Director, Music Director, and DJ at stations in Missouri and Akron, and Cincinnati, Ohio. Her time as Music Director at The Summit in Akron led the station to be featured in Paste magazine as well as to be nominated for AAA Radio Station of The Year by Radio and Records.
