๐ŸคฉWe had the pleasure of chatting with Joel Shortman from Rathdowne Records , one of the Love Local Card participating businesses๐Ÿคฉ โ€œI think that the Love Local Cards will be an amazing addition to the reopening of our community and will help support those who have not been able to treat themselves to gifts and services that have been out of reach during the extended lockdowns,โ€ โ€“ said Joel from Rathdowne Records. Starting out as a DVD rental shop in Carlton, Joel transformed his business into Rathdowne Records, a destination second-hand vinyl shop located on 230 High Street, opposite Northcote Town Hall. ๐Ÿ‘‰If you own or run an independent business in Darebin, there is still time to join the Love Local Card program. ๐Ÿ‘‰Check to make sure your business is eligible - https://bit.ly/3EICeB5 ๐Ÿ‘‰Submit your application online before the 30th of September to receive the full benefit of this program - https://bit.ly/3yyFX04 If you would like to speak to someone in your language, please call 8470 8470. If you have any questions about the Love Local Card program or the application process, please call the Business Support Team on 8470 8888 (Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm) or email [email protected]
My two favourite tracks from the latest Girls In The Groove are from an LP picked up a few years ago from Rathdowne Records - one of the best record stores in Melbourne. โ€œJun Mayuzumi in Person โ€˜70โ€ not only features a playful rendition of โ€œWhatโ€™d I Sayโ€ and a dynamite performance of โ€œWhat Happened At Saturday Nightโ€, but also some sizzling outfit pics of Mayuzumi too! Listen to these tracks and more here: https://www.mixcloud.com/sohoradio/dj-honey-girls-in-th-groove-10062021/
