According to record-store owner Lee Rea, “If art imitates life, then the record shop should be an epicenter for local culture.”
Rea is co-owner, along with his mother and sister, of the mom-and-pop record shop Peaches Records on Magazine Street. Peaches, opened in 1975 by Rea’s father, is one of nine independently owned record stores in New Orleans participating in the 12th annual Record Store Day this Saturday.
