Max scored an incredible 27 points proving he knew his stuff and even won the 3 in 10 bonus round, actually naming 4 titles in 5 seconds!
Max has been a fan of music all of his life and started MaxVinyl Records in 1999. Since then he has built the online record store to now stock an amazing collection of some 25,000 used vinyl records. Every genre Is present.
Immediately after finishing his winning round, visitors to his website and social media soared and the phone was red hot with people asking if he wanted to buy their record collection – from John O’Groats to Spain, they came from everywhere!
One woman commented on his Facebook page that she lived very close to Taunton, Max’s home town, and was really hoping that at the end he would say what his business was called and, luckily, Max obliged when he said thank you to the team at MaxVinyl Records! She was delighted and her husband promptly put in an order.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, vinyl records have taken on a new lease of life. The popularity has grown immensely as people felt they had more time on their hands to revisit old favourites and remember better and very different times.
The shutdown has been a very interesting experience for Max. He has watched his business grow as the nation rediscovered its love of vinyl records and shared his passion for music.
