This week’s episode of Behind The Counter features Hey Joe Music and Coffee in Essex .

“I was born into the music industry really. My parents had a record shop in the 80s and 90s called Sgt. Pepper’s. They had branches around Essex and East London, and I remember being in there most of my childhood to be honest!” Marc Sardinha, Hey Joe.

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.
