Backstreet Buys: Finding a Like-Minded Friend at Alley Records

Located in a lonely alleyway off Britton sits the hidden gemstone of Oklahoma City’s record-buying public, the aptly named Alley Records, 918 ½ Britton Rd.


Run by local roots musician Ronnie Jay Wheeler, behind that metal door is a whole world of vaunted recordings, one where it’s easy to spend more than an afternoon just sifting through the listenable goods, walking out with an armload or two.


I was there last Saturday afternoon, after months of wanting to visit, if I could find it. Once inside, at first glance, it resembles a teenage boy’s bedroom, with a variety of posters on the wall and various memorabilia in the bookshelves mixed around the thrift-store furniture. I wish my parents had been this permissible.
