DJB Sunday Documentary: Record Store Day

The last three years have been quite sad for the music industry: album sales, legal downloads and other modern ways in which people buy music have decreased. There was only one line of sales figures that obviously expanded howver: the old fashioned vinyl. A major contribution to these added sales is the annual Record Story Day, which took place this year in March. This BBC Documentary asks important people in the music industry what vinyl and Record Store Day means to them.

In 2014 over nine million records more were sold than in 2013, and that was only in the US. Record pressing factories are running overtime and new albums are consistently being released on vinyl. The BBC’s documentary asks why music lovers still buy vinyl records.
