News: Melodic Distraction celebrate our local record stores

April sees the annual celebration of Record Store Day in record stores across the UK.

Here at MD we thought that, well, every day is record store day – which is why this year, rather than celebrate the day itself, Melodic Distraction are doing something slightly different. 

We’re celebrating the amazing record stores themselves from Liverpool & the North West and the amazing work they do all year round, rather than just Record Store Day. 

Every Thursday in April, we’ve handed over the reins of our flagship morning radio show ‘Mornings With’, which broadcasts live from 10am to midday to some of our favourite local record stores.

With shows from the likes of Slipmat Records, 81 Renshaw, The Jacaranda Recordstore and more, tune in every Thursday for a celebration of Liverpool’s finest purveyors of the black gold we like to call vinyl. 

We kicked off the series last Thursday with Slipmat Records, an independent record shop based in West Kirby that specialises in funk, reggae, soul and so much more. Check it out below and join us this Thursday for 81 Renshaw, boasting an eclectic instore selection of both new and second-hand records!
