The Long Ear music store in Coeur d’Alene will celebrate 40 years in business on Saturday with an in-house party, including a performance by famed blues guitarist Robert Cray. We asked readers for their favorite music stores in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene area. Some answers reflected a sign of the times. Here’s a sampling:

Scott Kusel

Little Nell’s, Amber’s.

Holly Lutsenko

The Long Ear in CdA. Reminds me of record shops in Berkeley.

Rachelle Foster Stephens

I love 4000 Holes. Bob is great!

Benjamin Serr

The Long Ear in CdA is hands down the best place I have found in the area.

Charleen Woody Neal

Mirage Records and Tapes – hands down.

Michael Mcmahon

4000 Holes for me ……

People still buy CD’s?


I gave away all my CD’s and cassettes a few years ago and now stream all my music (and movies).
