Earlier this morning I had the chance to have Rich Koch, owner and operator of Off the Record, on "The Big Show" to talk about the store's retirement sale, potential buyers of the iconic record shop, Mariners baseball, and how the store and record industry has evolved over the past 30 years.


KATS will be there today from 4 to 6 p.m. Stop by to enter to win FREE tickets to this Friday's Seahawks-Chargers game as well as stubs to the Nine Inch Nails/Soundgarden concert and tickets to Linkin Park's show at the Gorge Amphitheatre.

We will also have a big-ass "THANK YOU" card for all to sign that we will be presenting to Rich and his staff for their years of hard work and dedication to keeping Off the Record the staple in Yakima where the music truly did matter.

Meantime, here's our conversation with Rich.
