Spin yourself a schedule for Saturday, the big day for music measured by its revolutions per minute. Record Store Day takes place in a number of shops in the Lincoln/Omaha area, and no doubt can be celebrated at music stores across Nebraska. Riffle through some stacks and come away with some smile-spawning scores.
