Bridport Music In Record Store Day Celebration
8:50am 20th April 2013
International Record Store Day is being celebrated at a specialist music shop in Bridport.
The idea is to recognise independent shops and their role with all genres of music, not just selling major artists and Top 40 hits.
Bridport Music in South Street opened early and also has artists playing live, each hour.
Steph Garner from Bridport Music says they and other independents like them provide a wider range than commercial music outlets who focus more on top 40 hits and major artists.
They say they can also offer personal service which buying online can't.
International Record Store Day started in the US 7 years ago, and is in its 6th year in the UK.
