The Exclusive Company—a Wisconsin-bred music-and-movie retailer—has given the gift of song since 1956, earning a Best of Milwaukee award from Shepherd Express readers in 2011. Passionate staffers guide visitors toward sprawling collections of rock and jazz and bins brimming with DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, and loose 8mm slides from Kenny G's summer vacation. In addition to peddling new vinyl releases such as El Camino by the Black Keys and Revolver by T-Pain, the shop functions as a trading post, helping to find loving homes for preowned films and music. All used discs are carefully buffed into shape before meeting their new owners, and each comes backed by a money-back guarantee, which promises store credit if a preowned item exhibits biting tendencies. Most used CDs, DVDs, and vinyl cost less than $20.

PDQ Car Wash has been cleaning cars and trucks since 1960. The Ultimate Exterior wash restores a car's youthful shimmer with a double pre-soap and a full exterior wash, and the tricolor and clear-coat sealers ensure a lasting shine. An under-chassis flush removes any dirt or gremlins before car pedicurists clean the wheels. The Manager's Special wash begins with an ashtray emptying, dashboard wiping, and thorough interior vacuuming to remove taco crumbs and dinosaur bones. The attention shifts to the auto's exterior as washers set up a pulley-platform system, helping themselves reach every window, apply tricolor conditioner, and de-ice the locks in the winter or after driving into a meat locker. After an exterior wash and under-chassis flush, warm air and towels dry the car as a Victorian shoe shiner polishes its wheels.
