Best to you and yours!  Pat



is open for curbside shopping.


Meeting lots of new customers with our curbside sales program. People who are happy to call up, give me their order, pull up to the curb, and have me bring their music out to their car. Lots of people have recently purchased new turntables from World Records. And great new releases are coming out with increased frequency as the year progresses. Here are some dandies:

Medicine At Midnight

Way Down In the Rust Bucket
1990 live performance at Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA.  Featuring many songs from his fabulous release ‘Ragged Glory.’

When You See Yourself

OK Human

Due to the You-Know-What, this year’s Record Store Day celebration will be split across two days: June 12 (Pssst – World Records’ 39th birthday) and July 17. If you love getting in on those exclusive indie record store LPs, be looking at the Record Store Day website. This year’s list is supposed to go public any day now.

While our concert stage is waiting for shows to begin again, it’s a dynamite time to resume construction of the World Records stage. Details about the pledge drive to fund this important undertaking are upcoming.


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!

Upcoming Shows – Lots of dates listed.

It appears that national touring will resume this Fall. It looks like our first show back will be Los Lobos, October 9. Not a bad way to kick off. Several additional shows are already listed on our Upcoming Shows page.

Please check back from time to time.
