This is the second time 6 Music has hit the road to celebrate all things vinyl, following their visit to Brighton previous year with Fat Boy Slim and Tim Burgess. Sales were as low as they'd been since their 70s heyday and the march towards digital seemed destined to mark the end of the road for the 100-year-old format.
Record Store Day returns Saturday to Charleston celebrating all things vinyl and offering music and pop culture fans limited edition treasures to add to their collections.
Vinyl sales hit a ten-year-high in 2016 and are tipped to continue to grow in 2017, while vinyl album sales have overtaken album downloads, helping to make the vinyl business worth more than free streaming services to the music industry.
Elk City Records will also have live music Saturday morning and Sullivan's Records will have a BYOB music happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. where customers can share music they bought during Record Store Day with other music fans.
Record Store Day launched in the United Kingdom in 2008 and is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the United Kingdom come together to celebrate their unique culture.
If a shop doesn't appear here, that's because as far as we know it isn't doing anything out of the ordinary for Record Store Day.
