Cutting Back on Music Space

Two weeks ago here I mentioned my surprise at seeing the 96-page catalogue by the largest Christian online/mail-order distributor containing only 13 CD releases. I pondered these things in my heart, so to speak, and wondered if at long last, it was time to cut back my adult music section from twelve feet of shelving to eight.  (No matter what you’re picturing, that’s still huge; since most titles are spine-out, library style; we’re known as a go-to store for backlist.)

Last week I did it, but not in the way I always thought I would.

I always thought that it would be the contemporary music section that would take the hit, since it is that genre of music mostly likely to be downloaded by a tech-savvy demographic.

Instead, Southern Gospel took the hit. Really, the section was decimated, leaving Mr. Gaither the recipient of an abundance of royalties since the return window for most of the product expired long ago. (We buy everything non-returnable anyway.) The Gaither DVDs were absorbed into an expanded video section (one shelf) but the DVD curriculum section was spread out and given much more visibility.

Still… never thought it would be southern gospel.
