The local independent record store sez: "Our goal has always been to provide a good selection of music, focusing on artists outside of the commercial mainstream. While we don't exclude artists based on commercial success, a hit on the radio certainly doesn't guarantee a space on our shelves. We are not snobby or elitist about it. We may not have a CD from the latest American Idol, but we would never belittle you for asking. The fact is, we can't stock everything. A customer once said that it was 'borderline un-american' of us not to stock Aerosmith CDs. That seems a bit extreme, but whatever. If you visit the store, we hope you'll find something you like. If you don't see the latest CD from your favorite artist, please don't be offended. We can always special order it for you."
