Folk Pub Crawl - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.12

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.

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 12 here -

With the news of redundancies and hard times in the hospitality industry, I’ve spun this week’s records in support of England’s great cultural institution, the pub. The music comes from a joblot of folk records. The pubs take us from Sussex in the south to Newcastle in the north. Join me for a few drinks, and wonderful folk music on this epic pub crawl across England. 

This Joblot of 6 records cost £7.37. Alban Low is your Joblotter. Part of the 'A World in London' radio series.
