Dig It! Record Barn gives customers a unique experience in the Four-States

The one-of-a-kind vinyl store offers vintage and new records located in Jasper County

JASPER COUNTY, Mo. — Dig It! Record Barn offers music lovers the opportunity to shift through vintage vinyl records.  What started as a hobby quickly became a passion for store owner Lynn Brennforder.  He says helping people connect with their past is rewarding in itself.

“I think one of the most fun this is — the stories that people tell me about the groups that they saw live or trying to replace a memory that they knew this album, they bought this album when they met their spouse, or whatever, just trying to match up those memories for people,” adds Brennforder.

But it’s not just your parents’ vintage records that they provide.  Dig It! Record Barn sells new vinyl.  More than 800 new albums on hand with 75 to 100 new records coming every week.

Brennforder says vinyl records present something that streaming music doesn’t.

“It’s more like being there. It’s a warmer sound. Pops and crackles a little bit makes it a little bit more of an experience,” adds Brennforder.

The vinyl store is located about two miles east of Carterville, Missouri, on 18505 Fir Rd in Joplin.
