AJC | Forget MP3s, some teens turning to vinyl recordsSee also Wired.com: Vinyl May Be Final Nail in CD's Coffin.
On a recent afternoon 15-year-old Graham Saylor popped into Decatur CD to check out new releases. But he sprinted right past the CDs, stopping, instead, at the six bins of vinyl records.
Saylor prefers to listen to his favorite new acts, such as TV on the Radio and the Black Keys, on the black 12-inch platters. Some classmates at Decatur High School have become vinyl fans as well.
So what attracts the teens to a musical format that was proclaimed landfill fodder years before they were born?
"I just dig vinyls more. The tone is warmer. I'm not much of a digital guy," explains Saylor.
