Rockaway Records is more than a Silver Lake Icon: It attracts music fans from around the globe in search of the finest vinyl, music memorabilia and everything else music related. (Think The Beatles, Frank Zappa, Elvis, and more.)  The SLNC’s History Collective Committee produced this in-depth interview with co-owner Wayne Johnson, who explains how he and his brother Gary started Rockaway, located at 2965 Glendale Boulevard – and why its legacy endures.

The History Collective preserves Silver Lake’s history by recording oral histories of the unique people who have impacted the community. The Committee has recorded over 100 interviews to date.
