Happy Anniversary!

We heard from Ric Addy this morning:  "On Jan 1st 1986, I got the keys to Shake Rattle & Read from my sister Gail who opened the business in 1966. Today is the start of my 24th year in business and the book store's 44th Anniversary!  "Thank you" to all my loyal customers for your support !!"

If you haven't been to Shake Rattle & Read (4812 N Broadway), you're missing one of Uptown's treasures.  The only thing better than the selection are Mr. Addy's stories.


  1. Congratulations, Ric. I get a kick out of the wacky selection in your store. I wish you many more happy anniversaries!!

    I also wish a very Happy New Year to one and all!

  2. I use to buy 45s at this tore-not saying I am old lol.Great store Great place. Also ty for this site.Was born and raised in area-nice to know whats going on.

  3. P.S. They also sell a lot of vintage "girlie" stuff along with the music memorabilia.

    I accidentally found out about the former while scrounging around the racks for the latter.
