I grew up here in Arizona, so Zia Records has always been a part of my home town. Zia was the first job I ever applied for at the ripe ol' age of 13 years old. Obviously, at that age, I didn't get the job. They were located on 7th Avenue just North of Indian School, and man, did I spend a lot of time there. That's back when the majority of the store was filled with records and cassette tapes! What a different time. Fortunately, Zia is still planted solid here in the valley. They've been able to keep the doors open at the multiple locations throughout Arizona despite the poor economy, and they continue to support KUPD every year as a ticket outlet for the annual U-Fest concert/festival. All I can say is... thank you Zia. You guys have kept things pretty real for a loooooong long time, and it's something I can appreciate. U-Fest 2012 tickets are available now at any valley Zia Records location as well as on our website, www.98kupd.com.
