I am here during our regular store hours to help you find the music you need.  Please give me a call – 661-325-1982.  I will be your Personal Shopper and bring your CDs, LPs, gift certificates, or t-shirts out to you.  Feel free to call anytime and leave me a message.   I will return your call when I get back.

THANK YOU to everyone who gets their music at World Records, and everyone buying World Records gift certificates to help our local record store hang in there!

World Records is a gathering place for people who love music. Here’s to a future day when we can gather again in our record store and our concert theater! May that day come VERY SOON!
