Radio-Active Records' Record Store Day Specials Include Fela Kuti, Drive By Truckers and Owl City(?)
Dig out those tents, because Record Store Day is April 17, and it's gonna be an early morning for vinyl junkies. Radio-Active Records again is offering a bounty of limited-edition albums for those of us who like good sound, as Lou Reed would say.
