This week’s episode of Behind The Counter features Dark Earth Records in Wallasey.

“It’s lovely when people come and buy records, we always have conversations, the music is just sort of a seed of further dialogue. We’ve built a community of people now who have taught us things, got us into music we didn’t even know existed. It’s about having a tribe. We found our tribe. We want to provide that tribe for other people.” Jim Brady, Dark Earth 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.
