In a short time, John has plunged directly into the deep end, and is just beginning to grow his channel and build an audience with his authentic and informative videos on all things vinyl and music.
During Eric’s initial run as a YouTuber, he has put out dozens upon dozens of excellent videos ranging from retrospective albums reviews, to interviews to good old fashioned unboxing videos, which prove that he and Vinyl Rewind are here to stay.
With loads of records, endless musical knowledge and an actual brick and mortar store, you can expect Dylan’s channel to continue to grow for as long as he wants to keep at it. That’s right, you heard right, Dillon has his very own record store. After years in the vinyl game selling online and locally, Dillon finally opened Noble Records, which is named after his son.
On a personal level, it’s been a pleasure getting to know Dylan. Since the interview, we’ve been emailing back and forth talking interviews, vinyl and most importantly -KISS. Also, Dylan has a passion for KISS soundboards and bootleg just as I do. It’s been cool nerding out on that.
If you consider yourself a part of the Vinyl Community, then you probably watch vinyl related videos on YouTube. Now, if you’ve been watching those videos then you’ve probably had the pleasure of checking out Jarrett New’s Vinyl Eyezz channel.
Melinda Murphy is one of the newer channels within the YouTube Vinyl Community, but don’t look now, she’s on fire. At the time of this writing (January 2021) Melinda has nearly 10,000 subscribers and counting and has published nearly 120 informative videos on all things vinyl.
Christina AKA The Vinyl Guru is one of the new kids on the block within the YouTube Vinyl Community, but don’t be fooled or take her channel for granted. In a short time, Christina has managed to grow her channel and make a real impact on the VC.
Music snobs come in many forms. Don’t be one. That should be all you’d need to say but unfortunately it isn’t. It comes in far too many forms. The fact that we need a group for women only speaks volumes about the state of snobbery/sexism. But that’s a topic unto itself, and one I’m not qualified to tackle.
I first discovered the Too Many Records YouTube channel in 2016, and have been steadily watching it ever since. Not a week goes by where I don’t check in with Matt’s channel to catch up with and enjoy his latest videos. I found Matt’s channel at the perfect time in my journey.
A big part of why I do what I do (writing about music, art, vinyl) is because I enjoy being part of the Vinyl Community. For me, there are many facets of the VC. You’ve got Facebook groups, subreddits and all that goes along with that. Another major component of the VC is the Youtubers. When I was first restarting my record collection years back, it was these Youtubers that fueled my interest and many of my buying habits at the time. Beyond that, they helped me learn. One of the earliest channels I remember watching was Channel 33 RPM.
