THE BRONX - Harmony Records in the Bronx has been selling vinyl records since 1956.

The store offers classic records like Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," as well as more recent records from artists like Lady Gaga.

Owner Glenn Velger grew up in the Bronx and says he used to spend his lunch money on records. He says the digital age and computers changed everything, taking people away from vinyl, cassettes and CDs. But in the past five years, Velger says more young people are coming into the shop.

Velger says he gets calls from all over the world asking for their favorite records.
