Beatnik Bus: mobile record store in Calgary

Canadian Kristin Poch owns and drives Calgary's first mobile record store, the Beatnik Bus. From CBC News:

The shop is stocked with a turntable and a couple of seats so customers can test out any one of the 600 vinyl discs that are riding shotgun.

Poch says her father inspired her to open the Beatnik Bus.

"He was always collecting an inventory to open up a store," she said. "About four years ago he had a massive heart attack, which forced him into retirement and the dream of opening a store was not a reality anymore."
