This week’s episode of Behind The Counter features Defend Vinyl in Liverpool.

“Defend Vinyl was inspired by a couple of trips I took to New Orleans. There’s a place there called ‘Defend New Orleans’, which is all about maintaining the spirit of the city. And I really liked the idea of keeping the spirit of records alive. It’s been amazing!” Graham Jones, Defend Vinyl.

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.
