Programme Skate & Sound opened in Fullerton, CA in early 2011. From Day 1, it chose to bridge the gap between music and skateboarding carrying both vinyl and hard goods.
Its not uncommon to have had a shop signing with the Deathwish team to Tony Alva DJing to an in-store with bands like Turnstile or The Casualties all in the store. Chris Gronowski and Efrem Schulz(vocalist of Death by Stereo/Manic Hispanic/Voodoo Glow Skulls) put their heads together and have spent the last 7 years nurturing this Skate & Sound community. Recently, Derek Miller(former owner of Detroit’s Pigeon Skate Shop) was named Hard Goods Manger/Buyer and looks to be a valuable addition to the team.
2018 brought the start of the Programme Sounds label and the debut release, Rats in the Wall, on 7″ vinyl(along with CD and Cassette). Look for more news at ProgrammeHQ.com and on Instagram at @programme
