What's the


There's nothing quite like vinyl.

One of the most exciting things of growing up in the 70's and 80's was making your early music choices. Buying your first 7 inch single from Woolworth's, or better still, saving up your pocket money for weeks to buy your first album. The cover artwork, the record sleeve and the vinyl. There's really nothing like it. And so began my discovery into music and my ever growing record collection. So you can imagine how excited I was to see the resurgence of vinyl records. I simply had to open a store! I'm Jon, and I hope my love of music and vinyl is shared by you. I'm constantly sourcing new records, so be sure to join our mailing list or even drop by to our Headingley store for cake and coffee - check out what's new and let's play to the Vinyl Whistle.
