The Hours - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.4

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 4 here -

Each week on Vinyl Joblottin’ we buy a bundle of vinyl at auction (or find one in a record shop, charity shop, car boot sale, etc). The records are a slice of a collection, giving us a glimpse into a collector’s past. Then we spin each joblot into a theme for you.

It’s been a hard week joblotting. I’ve been outbid on two big joblots. I have at least two nemeses who swoop in at the last moment to plunder the spoils for profit. Luckily I was able to win this ragtag lot of miscellaneous vinyl from 1956 to 1964. I play my records in the evenings. It made me think what time of day would suit the sound and style of each record, and if there was a specific name for each of these listening hours.

This episode features records from a joblot of 6 records that cost £4.10. Alban Low is your joblotter for this 20 minute episode.
