Welcome music lovers!
I have always loved listening to music. From the age of 6, I used to sit in my room for hours on end playing vinyl records. I used to make up my own top 10 from my 45s that I used to buy (from saving my lunch money!).
Music became a way of life for me at an early age, and I was keen to discover anything new. My idol was Weird Al Yankovic, I would listen to his parodies and source the original artist, which opened me up to a whole new world of music.
I used to tell people that "one day I will have my own record store". Now, some 30 years later it has finally happened!
The name "Vinyl Squeeze' comes from the accordion, also called a squeezebox, which Weird Al sometimes plays.
It was my vision that I wanted a store and website that gave people a choice in music and catered to all genres, tastes and eras, and for everyone to feel welcome and comfortable in the store, and I think that I have achieved this.
Thanks for visiting Vinyl Squeeze.
