This week’s episode of Behind The Counter features Thorne Records in Edinburgh.

“A record shop should be the centre of any community they’re in. It should be a safe space, somewhere that’s inclusive and everyone’s welcome. My ethos is I want them to be happier on the way out the door than the way in, and if I have achieved that, then I can sleep soundly!” Mark Thorne, Thorne Records.

Behind The Counter tells the stories behind the wonderful world of independent record shops. Presented by Classic Album Sundays and Record Store Day UK, in partnership with Bowers & Wilkins.
