Clock Tower Records

Clock Tower Records

Clocktower Records is located in the heart of scenic Grass Valley, California, about an hour north of Sacramento. Serving the area's vinyl needs since 2011, Clocktower was purchased by Jonny Moser last year. Jonny says he was at a crossroads trying to figure out his next chapter would include when he heard his favorite local record store was for sale.

"I kind of had an epiphany that this is what I'm supposed to do with my life," said Jonny. "Not only was the best (record) store in town, but they had a deep selection of cool prog," a genre he grew to love as a kid through Genesis albums like Trespass and Foxtrot.

"You know how it goes," says Jonny. "You find yourself in the gatefold of some record and the next thing you know, you're off and running."

Since purchasing Clocktower, Jonny has been blown away by the support of Grass Valley residents. "The community here is awesome," he says. "That's what it's all about, hacking with people about music, learning about what people are into and exploring. There are so many great people here who have been very supportive, especially in the wake of COVID."

In addition to fostering local relationships, Jonny quickly recognized the importance of building out a strong digital presence and online store. 

"He (the previous owner) had a discogs site for a long time," says Johnny. "(But I knew) this is something (e-commerce) that we want to focus on and expand. We need to do whatever we can to get records into people's hands from small businesses."

The Sub Pop Airport Store (Seattle, WA)

The Sub Pop Airport Store (Seattle, WA)

Sub Pop SeaTacSub Pop is a record label founded in 1986 by Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman in Seattle, Washington.
Sub Pop achieved fame in the late 1980s for first signing Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney and many other bands from the Seattle music scene. They are often credited with taking the first steps toward popularizing grunge music, and have continued to achieve critical and commercial success in the new millennium, with bands such as Fleet Foxes, Foals, Beach House, The Postal Service, Flight of the Conchords, No Age, Wolf Parade and The Shins on their roster. 

Sub Pop launches new retail concept store in Seattle Tacoma Airport (story here)

Sub Pop’s long-standing motto, “Spanning the Globe for Profit”, became more true than ever before this May as they opened the doors to a first-of-its-kind retail space in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The Sub Pop Airport Store (working-title-turned-seemingly-actual-title) is a mix of the classic Sub Pop Mega Mart and a Pacific Northwest-centric gift shop. Sub Pop collaborated with designers, artists, and companies who also call the Pacific Northwest home and created a vast array of brand new Sub Pop and PNW-related wares currently available exclusively (for now) at the Sub Pop Airport Store.

Broadtime was honored when approached by Sub Pop to create an instore listening experience to match the whole ethos of their iconic brand and store.  We knew that Sub Pop's customers would be looking for an exciting, fun way to discover and further explore the fantastic selection of media at the store. Broadtime BPM stations provide the perfect platform to deliver that experience along with Sub Pop's marketing message. It has been an incredible opportunity to be part of this thrilling venture and we are proud that our BPM stations are now part of a new Seattle Landmark.
