The Start Of Vinyl On The Net

I started trading professionally in 1982 mainly selling via Record Collector magazine. With the advent of the internet I transfered the business there, setting up a site which like so many of the early sites had a very long winded and useless domain name -- in fact I can't even remember what it was!

Realising that the way forward was to have a dedicated domain the search was on for a name. I drew a blank, it was only when my webmaster said "well what is it that you're selling?" and I replied "vinyl on the net" to which he said "that's it, www.vinylonthe.net" that we solved the problem.

That was seven years ago and the name certainly seems to have stood the test of time. People like it and seem able to remember it!
