Mr. Drayton is a music anorak with an extensive record collection. Tired of life on MP3 shuffle, he unwrapped his vinyl collection six years ago and began presenting Mr. Drayton’s Record Player at the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle upon Tyne. Originally booked for a four week season, it has now entered its sixth year.
The Record Player has been invited to spin some discs in some prestigious North East Venues including Sage, Gateshead, Baltic, Durham Gala Theatre, Live Theatre and a tent in Sunderland.
Each presentation is preceded with a ‘cut out and keep’ guide to the album. Mobile phones and chitter-chatter are discouraged. The Record player brings you a chance to hear an album, as it was meant to be heard, in its entirety, from start to finish. It’s amazing what you hear when you listen.
