The Tower Records Project was established to fund the preservation and a traveling exhibit of Tower-related history donated by Tower Records founder Russ Solomon.

The first HOT ITALIAN is located in midtown Sacramento at 1627 16th Street, just blocks down from the original Tower store. In honor of Tower, we created limited edition t-shirts designed by former Tower Records employee Stephanie Azam emblazoned with “No Pizza. No Life.” -- a nod to Tower’s famous “No Music. No Life” slogan. The phone number 916-444-3000 is also serendipitously both Tower Records former phone number and HOT ITALIAN midtown's current phone number.

The $25 t-shirts are for sale now at both HOT ITALIAN locations and on with 100% of the net proceeds benefitting the fundraising effort.
