Tim, who has been extremely active during the C-19 lockdown and whose Tim’s Twitter Listening Party has attracted a huge social media following, is a passionate advocate of independent record stores and the author of the acclaimed Tim Book Two – Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco, an ode to record shopping.

Tim says, “The idea of what we would do without physical record shops has been a question we’ve asked in the past, but now it’s looking more possible than ever and we need to do whatever we can to help. Record shops are like drop in therapy centres for me – there’s a calmness, a familiarity and a sense of belonging that I don’t feel in many other places. A chance to talk with like-minded people – and maybe be reminded that you didn’t know as much about music as you thought you did. Like an animal threatened with extinction – we need to organise ourselves to try and stop it happening. Record shops have been good to me since I first ever spent time on my own – they’ve been good to us, let’s do what we can to help.

An incredible 24 hour online party is being curated for #LRSD together with the aforementioned exclusive record releases. #loverecordstores is also in partnership with the Music Venue Trust to support their #saveourvenues campaign.

We will be in touch of course with further details about #loverecordstores but, until then, please help promote the event whenever you get the opportunity by visiting and promoting the Love Record Stores Day blog or Instagram @LoveRecordStores, Twitter @LoveRecsStores or Facebook @LoveRecordStores.

There are also the hashtags #loverecordstores and #LRSD to be used as appropriate when posting on social media channels.

Thank pop fans!
