  • Britain buys vinyl, but doesn't listen to it

    Record stores are doing a great business in the United Kingdom these days, but that doesn't mean that records are the new thing to listen to. Apparently just under half of people who bought records recently in the UK recently admitted in a survey that they've never even listened to the vinyl they've purchased. Most of the people who buy these records do so after hearing them on ad-packed streaming sites like youtube or Spotify. They purchase the ads to build their collection but don't necessarily listen to the actual vinyl, and apparently about 7% of people who bought vinyl in the UK recently don't even own a record turntable.
