It's National Vinyl Record Day

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Vinyl, the medium that time kind of forgot for a while then remembered again in a big way!

Vinyl records started making a comeback about 10 years ago and today are regularly celebrated by audiophiles as the only way to hear music the way it was meant to be heard.

"There's just something that sounds better about an album as opposed to a CD or MP3," said Lunchbox Records owner Scott Wishart.

The record store on Central Avenue sells classic music recordings as well as new releases on vinyl.

According to the website Nationaldaycalendar.com, vinyl records left the mainstream in 1991. They continued to be manufactured and have started to become increasingly popular with collectors and audiophiles.

August 12th has been designated as National Vinyl Record Day to celebrate the medium.
