The organisers of Record Store Day UK and National Album Day last week teamed up with the Official Charts Company to launch The Record Club, a fortnightly live-streamed programme on Facebook that aims to “unite music fans, celebrate album releases during lockdown and support the UK’s record shops”.

Every other Wednesday, BBC presenter Jess Iszatt will put the spotlight on a new or recent album chatting to the artist behind it. Streamed via the Record Store Day UK, National Album Day and Official Charts Facebook pages, viewers will be encouraged to order the featured album from their local or favourite record shop.

The first edition last week featured Rina Sawayama talking about recent album ‘Sawayama’, while on 20 May Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods will discuss his band’s new record ‘All That Glue’.

Last week’s edition is available to watch again here, while – as for edition two – organisers say: “Order a copy of ‘All That Glue” from your local record shop, give it a spin, then tune into the next episode with Jason Williamson”.
