The Media Play in Monroeville has already packed up & left & the word is that said store in Robinson is also closing.


I used to spend hours in the dimestore looking through the record bin long before I even owned a stereo. I was fascinated by the cover of Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. mall music stores are a rip-off anyway. I buy at Best Buy where the new releases are $2-3 bucks cheaper than the mall.


I heard about Media Play, but it escaped my notice that the store is the last remaining music store in Ross Park. This will make shopping for my husband more complicated now. In fact, I don't know how I'll get him IN the mall on the few necessary occasions. CDs were always a great bribe. Time to get him hooked on Amazon I suppose. (having obscure musical taste, I've already mostly given up on brick and mortar music stores myself)


I was always fascinated with the naked children on my sister's Led Zepplin Houses of the Holy album cover. My brother had a Beach Boys album that had a seagull standing on a woman's bikini clad breast. At age 7, that was cool. Heck, I'm 38 now and the more I think of it, it's still cool! The most graphic album that I have ever owned was "Pieces of Mind" by Iron Maiden... my parents were pretty freaked out by it.
