Welcome to April (or at least what’s left of it)! As you all know, spring is the perfect time to do some cleaning and clearing out old junk. It’s also the perfect time to fill those empty shelves you just cleared off with new CDs and DVDs (or at least that’s what we plan to do)! We thought you’d like a little help with that. So, without further ado, here’s the release schedule of the month. Enjoy!
