New music Tuesdays?

Why Tuesday? Why are new books and music (and DVDs) almost always released on a Tuesday? I’m sure there is an answer to this, but while I’m curious enough to ask the question, I’m just lazy enough to avoid searching for an answer. Besides, I suspect the answer is precisely what an old math teacher of mine used to say about why things were done a certain way in mathematics: by convention.
