CD source fire leaves community members grieving | News

The community reacts after an area record store caught fire



Rockford (Rex) – Community members create Go Fund me to support CD Source Records after a devastating fire.

CD Source music store destroyed overnight in massive fire; However, her memory is still alive in the hearts of many.

Skylar Davis, owner of the cultural shock music store, says that CD Source, pushed him to start his own business.

“When I actually grew up, I was really into music and local stores were always more interesting to find different music and recordings, so I used to go there as a teenager even years before I opened my record store,” Davis said.

The building was widely known for its frescoed shape seen on its sides. The artist behind the mural, Brett Whittakrey, says he can’t believe what happened.

“I really loved the mural and I know a lot of people loved it and said a lot of great things to me about it and what it means to them, so it’s really sad to see it disappear,” Whitaker said.

Loyal customers sympathize with the owner and say that the store is unique.

“We don’t have a lot of places doing this in town and one of those guys was, so we’re standing in another shop for another guy doing it, so it’s a shame he now has to deal with ideas instead of the thing he enjoys,” said Brian Buscemi.

A Go Fund Me was formed to support the CD source with a goal of four thousand dollars and nearly two thousand dollars have already been raised.
