The return of the 78

It is Record Store Day today. An annual event where independent record stores team up with musicians and record labels to bring out exclusive, one day only releases in the hope of luring music fans away from the internet and into real life record shops.

This year sees special CD and vinyl releases by the likes of Abba, Bruce Springsteen and The Sex Pistols. But as Mark Coles reports the 78rpm record is making a surprise comeback too.
