From the Archives: Vintage Photos of Zia Records Over the Years

When Arizona's Zia Records launched in 1980, founder Brad Singer wanted the store to serve as a music hub. It did just that over the next four decades, as its many locations across the metro Phoenix and Tucson have been stomping grounds for bands and music lovers. Arizona residents have flocked to Zia to buy and sell music, check out in-store appearances and performances, or just hang out.

In honor of this week's cover story on the history of the independent record store chain, we've dipped into the archives of Phoenix New Times and Zia and gathered a collection of vintage photos from the past 40 years, including shots of its people, patrons, and bands.
