London, Dec 27 (ANI): Vinyl records are set to make a one day comeback on BBC Radio 6 Music as the station will be playing only vinyl on 1st January.
Most BBC stations phased out vinyl in favour of CDs in the 1990s and the majority now use digital versions of songs.
But 6 Music bosses have turned the clock back with an 'All Vinyl' day to round off a month-long celebration of vinyl.
Singer-songwriter Richard Hawley will host a show talking to prominent acts such as Arctic Monkeys and Radiohead about the joys and the pitfalls of vinyl.
Dance DJ and producer Andrew Weatherall and singer Cerys Matthews will be joining the vinylfest in their shows.
"In a world dominated by digital music, vinyl is a format still close to the hearts of many music lovers and increased sales demonstrate its enduring appeal," the BBC quoted station editor Paul Rodgers as saying.
"Listeners can expect rare gems, insights and a few crackles and pops when digital goes analogue for one day only," a spokeswoman for the station said. (ANI)
