Phil Aston (Editor in Chief)
I have been collecting music since I was 13, saving every penny of my pocket money to buy 7″ singles, then Cassettes (I know what was I thinking!) jumping to vinyl and then CDs and now filling the house with ever bigger deluxe box sets.
The idea behind this website was to raise a flag to celebrate the joy of collecting physical music. I do stream music but primarily to discover more things to buy! This website and our Private Music Community on Facebook celebrates all physical formats. Within this website, you will find album reviews, video reviews of new and old box sets, new releases, reissues, exclusive features and interviews.
If you are a band or record label and want to have your music or latest release featured on Now Spinning please get in touch.

This website is run by myself and supported by a small team of total music enthusiasts from a variety of backgrounds. All of us have a passion for still collecting physical music. We love vinyl, CD, Books, Memorabilia, in fact, everything that makes up a music collection. Phil

Chris Wright (Producer)
Born and bred in Suffolk England, Chris moved to the USA in his late 40s. This finally enabled him to create a dedicated basement listening room, where he could again indulge in being a serial audiophile and music collector to his heart’s content, without bothering his long-suffering and much-loved wife, kids and pets.
Chris bought his first HiFi system about 35 years ago and now believes he has reached the end game with his current set up (audiophiles always say that kind of stuff…). Of course the same can’t be claimed for his extensive and wide-ranging vinyl and CD collection, which he describes as a permanent work in progress.

John Dotters (Contributor)
Mancunian John developed a healthy love of music from the early heroes of Mud, Showaddywaddy and Sweet before Yes, Kiss and the NWOBHM turned the head before reaching the current day love of most things Abba to ZZ Top. Dabbled in fanzines, proper magazines but then got a proper job and wished he hadn’t.
Music isn’t everything as football, rugby (both codes) and cricket take up the rest of the waking hours. Everything else isn’t important apart from an endless supply of tea and episodes of Lovejoy
