Our Story

Welcome to Old Man Vinyl Records, LLC. I have been buying and collecting records since the 1970's and in 2020 decided to follow my passion and launched my on-line record store. On January 5, 2024, I realized my dream of opening my brick and mortar store, in Fredericksburg, VA. Hopefully you will enjoy my selection of New and Used Vinyl Classic Disco, Rock, Punk, New Wave, R&B, House, Electronica, Soundtracks, Italo Disco, lots of 12" Singles and more from the 70's, 80's, 90's and beyond, as much as I do. Please come visit the store or feel free to reach out to me directly via my contact us page, if you have any questions about any of my selections or with any suggestions on records that you would like to see me carry in the future.
In the meantime, there are some very special people who have have been huge help in making this dream come true. First and most importantly, I'd like to thank the most important person in my life, my wife Christine Lush-Rodriguez; my biggest fan, my rock, my first investor and the love of my life; thank you, babe.
Next, I'd like to thank some great friends; Jason Poblete for your friendship, legal advice and constant encouragement; music industry giants and good friends, legendary NYC DJ Tony Smith and renowned music executive, Curtis Urbina, both of whom took time from their busy schedules to give me sound and sage advice, which primarily included to be sure to keep my prices low and affordable for all to be able to enjoy the music; thank you all for your wonderful friendship!
Last, but absolutely not least, a huge thanks and big hugs to my Smithette brethren, Kim Sudhalter, Cathy P. Tinelli, Sandy Miller, Debbie Yavo, John Conaghan and Manuel Eduardo, thank you all for helping me love the music we all enjoy every week.

So without further ado, welcome to Old Man Vinyl Records, LLC. This is my labor of love and I hope you enjoy browsing and shopping as much I enjoyed creating this collection of great records for you. I really appreciate your visit and hope you can please tell your friends to visit too.
