Conversations with a Vinyl Record Guru

Posted by Jamie_Williams on Jul 05, 2011

Meet David Read, one of the characters featured in this week’s Extended Play Podcast .

David’s life has revolved around the vinyl record since as long as he can remember; he’s been a collector forever, landed his first job at a record store in a local mall, done retail, distribution, management, marketing – and any other job you can think of that relates to the format.

In 2005, David started Vinyl Record Guru, a company that has grown so successful, it now produces hundreds of thousands of records per year for clients all over North America.

I travelled to the small city of Nanaimo to sit down with the guru and gain a glimpse into a life that’s been built on the foundations of an undying love for those ageless discs of wax.
