RIP Tommy, such awful news. Saw him at Birchmere in September, and at the Blackcat show as well, and maybe 15 other times. Booked him at college a million years ago. The Keene family has had it rough.

Record and Tape Exchange. They opened in the mid 70s and had a few locations. The last one (under different ownership) is in Fairfax.

I think it opened in 1977 in a small white house on RT 1, then moved to a nearby strip mall in the early 90s. I'm not sure when it closed but it's been at least 10 years. They also had locations in Annapolis and Bowie (where they sold "special import" LPs, aka bootlegs).

Game Exchange moved out years ago. It was only in CP a few years, never attaining much status. OTOH, College Park RTX was at least semi-legendary. After they moved out, the house hosted a skateboard shop, then Atomic Music, and lastly a  cleaners and tux rental shop.
