BBC TV Debut for Martin
Our Director and head of Vinyl Records Martin Hughes was asked to contribute to an upcoming episode of BBC Bargain Hunt to talk about the Vinyl Revival and give some top tips on collecting vinyl records. Martin filmed with Anita Manning and the Bargain Hunt team at Whizzy Wallops in Suffolk for an episode that will go to air late 2018 or early 2019.
As head of the specialist Vinyl Records, Music Memorabilia & Guitars department at Wessex Auction Rooms, Martin has overseen a huge growth in the specialist auctions - "as music listening has now evolved to the point where there is no tangible product, we are now seeing a massive resurgence in vinyl records because people want an immersive experience" says Martin. "We get so many collections of what people believe to be worthless records, but once I get a chance to look through them I almost always find a gem or two!"
Wessex Auction rooms are currently consigning items for their upcoming specialist auction of vinyl records. Entries are invited Monday-Friday 9am-5pm with no appointment necessary. Give Martin a call on 01249 720888 if you would like to discuss your collection.
